Marin Shakespeare Company - Hey nonny nonny and wild Shakespeare!--Pacific Sun

Merry Wives of Windsor 2003

Directed by Robert Currier

The Merry Wives of Windsor

Producer's Perspective:

As popular as Merry Wives is, neither Bob or I had ever been involved with a production when we decided to put the play on at Forest Meadows. So...we gave ourselves a bit of an out-of-town tryout by taking the show down to Baja where we put on The Merry Wives of Windsurf. Bob and I played the Fords and co-directed, our set was a couple of surfboards and some colorful windsurf sails, and we learned quite a bit about the rhythm of the action and how an audience reacts to the play.

We also stole a few of our own ideas for our Marin production: Anne Page in a bikini, the Pink Panther theme for the "sneaking" scenes leading into Herne's Oak, and a general irreverence and devotion to local humor.
