Shakespeare's most bourgeois comedy, this canonical farce was directed by Victoria Gartner on Zoom for East15 Acting School.
Back in May 2020, the Covid crisis had brought the entire performance industry to a halt, including all acting schools. Emerging artists everywhere have been faced with a daunting crisis. Instead of trying to ignore the radical change of medium, the BA Acting Group at East15 decided to embrace it. Together with Gartner, they created a Shakespeare production of The Merry Wives of Windsor that is experienced as whispers in the wings of the character's Zoom and phone calls.
