“Here’s a production to rescue The Merry Wives of Windsor from the remainder pile of Shakespearean history… Considine [as Falstaff] is a barrelling and bright-eyed force of nature... He’s gruff, explosive and thrilling to watch. His acting is knife-edged. Utterly alive. And so is the production.” Chris Boyd, The Australian
