The Merry Wives of Windsor

Directed by Adrian Uzzell

Lies, disguises and dirty laundry … The Merry Wives of Windsor is an uproarious tale of mischief and double-dealing where the women get the last laugh.

Down on his luck, Sir John Falstaff arrives in leafy Windsor and plots to seduce two wealthy married women. He thinks he’s pulling off the perfect hustle and one of them will fall for his irresistible charms. But Windsor women are cunning, and they’re about to play some tricks of their own...

Bring a chair or blanket to sit on, wine, food, family and friends for a magnificent outdoor performance on the Training Field at Windsor & Eton Football Club, Stag Meadow, St Leonards Road, Windsor SL4 3DR. There will also be a bar to buy drinks.

An excellent interpretation of the classic "Antigone" by Sopochles set in the 90's and portraying themes very relevant to to day, Sarah Bond took her first directing role for the Windsor Theatre Guild and with a stellar cast delighted audiences at The Old Court, Windsor between 27th and 30th March 2024.

The Lady in the Van

​This thought-provoking, hilarious and moving tale was presented to a very receptive audience mid November 2023 at The Old Court, Windsor. 

Directed by Jen Mackay and involving both new and long standing members of the Guild, this classic Alan Bennett play received many plaudits for the set, lighting and sound, the vision of the direction and the performance delivered by the cast.

Alice

In March 2023, audiences at the Old Court, Windsor were captivated by a darker and a little bit disturbing fusion of the classic stories “Alice in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass”. 

 

Directed by Anna Jones with musical direction by Rob Harris, the original script was enhanced to highlight  how Lewis Carroll took inspiration from the real life love story between commoner Alice Liddell and Prince Leopold with attempts by his mother, Queen Victoria, to stop any romance.

"The Good Life" has been one of the Guild's most popular productions, resonating with audiences and bringing back some treasured memories

Animal Farm

“All Animals Are Equal

But Some Animals Are More Equal Than Others”

George Orwell’s world-famous and unsettling 'fairy story' was originally based on the Russian Revolution of 1917 and its aftermath.

 

With its themes of freedom, fake news and the corrupting nature of power, it is as relevant today as when it was written at the end of the Second World War.   Old Major, the prize boar, calls the animals of Manor Farm together. He has had a strange dream of a better future...
