Falstaff

Friday, August 15 | 7 pm

A no-holds-barred romp through the life of Sir John Fastolf. “Jack” takes us into battles, bedrooms and bars, reliving the ecstasies of the carnal and the horrors of the carnage. Clayton Jevne’s adaptation of Robert Nye’s Guardian Fiction Prize-winning novel is a one-actor show about Nye’s character: a heroic and comical combination of Shakespeare’s self-absorbed buffoon and the actual historic figure of Sir John. Wary of Shakespeare? No worries—Nye writes for a modern audience.

Adapted and performed by Clayton Jevne (Victoria, BC) from a novel by Robert Nye
Rated: PG (adult themes) | Length: 90 minutes, no intermission

“Amazing…a very fine actor…a wonderful story teller.” —CBC

“Masterful. Sympathetic, without losing his bawdy edge.” —Monday Magazine

“A character we continue to love…an impressive outing.” —Victoria Times Colonist
