The Globe Theatre is #10 in our London Bucket List

Director: Nicole Charles, Elle While; Written by: William Shakespeare

Sir John Falstaff is down on his luck and hits upon the bright idea of hustling his way to a comfortable retirement by seducing the wives of two rich men.

But unbeknownst to him, the Merry Wives of Windsor quickly cotton on to his tricks and decide to have a bit of fun with him, gleefully orchestrate his comeuppance amidst a smorgasbord of petty rivalries, jealousies and over-inflated egos.

Note: the Globe's theatre season runs from April to October. Craig has been to watch a play at the Globe himself and thoroughly recommends it because it's not like any other theatre you've ever seen -- it's all open-air, for a start, and it has a standing area in the middle (called 'The Yard'). The actors sometimes parade through this yard during the scenes, and end up involving the crowd as if they were part of the cast. Read Craig's review of watching a play at the Globe before you go, so you can get a feeling for what it's like inside.
