Matilda is a story about dreaming big, even though you may just be little. This hit musical is based on Roald Dahl's much-loved book of the same name, which tells the tale of an extraordinary child with hideous parents and an even more horrible headmistress. The production is given the musical treatment by the combined talents of Tim Minchin and the Royal Shakespeare Company - a winning combination earning it four awards at the 2013 Tonys!

Down on his luck, famed bounder Sir John Falstaff decides to turn his fortunes around by scamming two married women with the identical love letters, hoping that at least one of them falls for his ploy and shares her husband's fortune. Unfortunately, things don't quite go to plan, and he's thwarted by the merry wives of Windsor at every turn, who on discovering his duplicity decide to get some revenge! But whether he's berated by forest demons or thrown into the Thames, Falstaff retains his sense of humor and his 'joie de vivre' to the very end.
