"Overwhelming delights"
Review from Derby Evening Telegraph

Shakespeare in the open air is always a fine way to enjoy a British summer and 2003's bawdy farce 'The Merry Wives Of Windsor' was a perfect production for it's leafy setting in the grounds of Derby Grammar School.

With financial support from our sponsors at EDS the production was brought together under the direction of David Titley and featured many splendid performances from a diverse and talented cast.
