Much Ado About Falstaff

Date: 2nd to 2nd Jul 2020

7:30pm start        £12 per adult

Kick In The Head productions are following up recent successes with a new play about Sir John Falstaff... a rogue, a philanderer and a glutton, but also one of Shakespeare's greatest and enduring comic creations.

In this new play by Simon Downing we find Falstaff, played by Giles Shenton, in his bedroom in the Boars Head being nursed by Mistress Quickly played by Suzanna Walters.

The creditors arrive demanding payment. Will Falstaff resort to marrying Mistress Quickly in order to pay off his debts? Will he turn teetotal? Will he mellow in his old age? Find out the answers to all these important questions that Shakespeare did not answer and join Falstaff for an evening of jollity, frivolity, a definite lack of coequality and more Shakespearean insults than ever previously heard on a theatrical stage.


The performance shall be in our gardens, if the weather is bad then it will be staged in our Crystal Room, after all...the show must go on!

Full pre-payment of £12 per person is required at the time of booking, tickets will be sent in the post when booked with our Events Team at the Hotel on 01822 852245. Tickets sold on the door on the night will be £15 per person.

Please bring along low backed seating/blankets if the weather is nice. Food and drinks will be available from our Restaurant and Dartmoor Bar with popcorn and ice cream available in the interval. Alternatively, if you would like to bring along a picnic on this occasion please do.
