As part of the world-wide celebrations of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, Nothing but Roaring presents Shakespeare’s hilarious farce of love, lust and jealousy.

Sir John Falstaff is down on his luck. Plan A: seduce two married women who are BFFs. Suffice to say, things do not quite go to plan. Well, not Falstaff’s anyway… See the incorrigible rogue with his pants down and his bottom very soundly spanked (he wishes).
