Strong Women In SHakespeare
SWISH was originally the Players’ highly successful contribution to the first Stroud Shakespeare Festival held in Stratford Park in May 2018. A team of actors and directors performed an open-air series of short scenes from the History plays (including Henry V, Henry VI & Richard III) celebrating famous speeches from strong women.
For the October production, the Players will add a second half consisting of linked scenes from Much Ado About Nothing, with the evergreen sparring of Beatrice and Benedick, and The Merry Wives of Windsor, with the gulling of the lecherous Falstaff by the redoubtable Mistress Ford and Mistress Page.
SWISH ….. again promises an entertaining evening of the best of Shakespeare, telling the powerful stories of these remarkable women in some of the wonderful verse and prose that the English language has to offer.
