The Faces of Falstaff

Sir John Falstaff of Shakespeare’s history plays seems quite distant from the fortune-hunting would-be seducer of The Merry Wives of Windsor. Was Shakespeare demeaning his greatest comic creation to please the queen, who reputedly asked to see Sir John in love, or are the two Falstaffs essentially the same man? Join actor Geraint Wyn Davies, scholar Lynne Magnusson, Stratford Festival Archivist Liza Giffen and moderator Robert Cushman in a discussion about this seeming dichotomy.
