Charity: Combat Stress No 206002  

Yet another year has passed! We are pleased to say that the Festival Players are returning with another of their excellent productions. We have chosen Combat Stress again as the charity to benefit. Last year we raised nearly £900 for the Charity. 

The Players are bringing thissummer feast of farce in which the roguish and foolish Knight, Falstaff, schemes to woo two married women to get his hands on their husbands’ money, but the wiley Wives of Windsor are more than a match for him. The Players bring you this hilarious and colourful comedy in an all-male, fast-paced, costumed production (2 hours plus interval).
