so I don't see this as a bargain per se. Still a bargain though.


LOL
The Globe has charged £5 for the standing tickets for as long as I can recall so I don't see this as a bargain per se. Still a bargain though.

The Merry Wives of Windsor
http://www.shakespeares-globe.org/img/Merry%20Wives%20thumbnail.jpg
Imagining that Mistress Ford and Mistress Page have each fallen for him, the fat knight Sir John Falstaff decides to seduce them both, as much for their husbands’ money as for their personal charms. Wise to the old rogue’s tricks, the women turn the tables on him with a series of humiliating assignations and a very damp, extremely smelly laundry basket.

Featuring many characters from Henry IV Parts 1 and 2, Shakespeare’s brilliantly constructed farce, which gave birth to a tradition that reaches down to the modern TV sitcom, returns to the Globe after delighting audiences in 2008.

**** 'I cannot recommend it too highly... Those in search of a theatrical treat this summer need look no further' Daily Telegraph

**** 'Christopher Luscombe's entrancingly funny, sweet-hearted production... Serena Evans and Sarah Woodward lark in perfect rapport' The Times

**** 'Fun throughout, this Merry Wives seems set once again to be a seasonal crowd-pleaser' Evening Standard

Henry IV Part 2
http://www.shakespeares-globe.org/img/Henry%20IV%202%20thumbnail.jpg
Hotspur is dead and Prince Hal has proved his mettle on the battlefield, but Henry IV lies dying and the rebels, though scattered, show no sign of declaring their allegiance to the Crown. Even Falstaff is forced out of the taverns to raise a scratch militia in the country. But will his attachment to the rising Hal be rewarded with promotion and the life of ease he feels sure he deserves?

At least the equal of Part 1, Henry IV Part 2 includes some of the greatest moments in Shakespeare: the deathbed scene of the old King, when Hal contemplates the crown; the reunion of Falstaff with his old boon companion, Justice Shallow; and Hal's devastating rejection of Falstaff himself.

**** 'It's our national pageant, and it's gloriously available in London's most informal and genuinely popular theatre' The Independent

**** 'Staged with terrific aplomb... The ensemble effort is palpable and there are a host of first-rate performances... William Gaunt and Christopher Godwin are worth the price of admission alone... A triumph' Daily Telegraph

**** 'Dominic Dromgoole offers an impassioned take on Shakespeare's story of a troubled usurper, a rebel age, a dissolute prince and his Falstaff... (Allam is) a Falstaff to treasure' The Times
