The Merry Wives of Windsor - the Pantaloons

event details

Hosted by the Pantaloons


"Wives may be merry, and yet honest too!"

This summer, The Pantaloons theatre company are bringing Shakespeare’s classic comedy The Merry Wives of Windsor to open-air and indoor venues around the country - and we're delighted to announce that the Stade Hall in Hastings Old Town is one of them! 


Sir John Falstaff, everyone's favourite Shakespearean sleazeball, has fallen on hard times. In order to fix his finances he plans to seduce the wives of two wealthy merchants. But, wise to his wily ways, the ladies take the opportunity to punish Falstaff by playing a series of hilarious tricks on the nincompoop knight.


Expect silly slapstick, abundant anachronisms and memorable music nestled amongst Shakespeare’s poignant poetry as the critically-acclaimed Pantaloons put their own innovative and interactive spin on this classic comedy. The Pantaloons will be setting each unique performance in the town they are currently visiting – and using audience suggestions to fill in all the necessary details – to (hopefully!) hilarious effect.

The Pantaloons are a vibrant and anarchic theatre company whose style draws from a wide variety of popular theatre traditions from commedia dell’arte and clowning to stand-up comedy and silent movies. So bring your seasoned Bard-fans and Shakespeare novices alike for an unforgettable evening of riotous renaissance revenge!

This is a performance for everyone to enjoy! Adult tickets £12, Child tickets £7. Family tickets are available for £30 for x2 adults and up to x3 children. Children under the age of 3 can come along for free!

Performed at the Stade Hall, The Stade, Hastings Old Town, TN34 3FJ
