Certainly not the 450+ students who attended the Shakespeare Festival Schools Day on May 14th at the Gloucester Showground.
As the buses pulled up for a morning matinee on a beautiful Autumn day, students bristled with anticipation at the prospect of attending a raucous Elizabethan comedy. Newcastle's Shakespeare et Al didn't disappoint with its energetic production of the Bard's The Merry Wives of Windsor.
This is not a well-known Shakespeare play but students appreciated the colourful language and costumes on display.
Saskia Rosenblatt declared the production 'fantastic.'"
