The performance ended up not being my cuppa tea. The accents were too varied and the dialogue was delivered too fast for me to understand. The actors were a mixed bag of subtle delivery and over-the-top showiness that didn't feel smooth.

Description

Falstaff loves that he’s got it all figured out, and we love him for being so wrong. Braggadocio, buffoonery and tricks all make this story jiggle and jounce with great delight. Comeuppance ain’t worth tuppence unless it’s done in good fun, and even the lessons learned can be sweet while they sting.
