Royal Shakespeare Company actor David Acton popped into Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall and met up with Alan Wales, who welcomes visitors to the Schoolroom as Master Thomas Jenkins, Shakespeare’s Schoolmaster.

David will shortly start rehearsals for the RSC’s forthcoming production of The Merry Wives of Windsor, in which he plays Sir Hugh Evans, who, it is believed, Shakespeare based on Master Thomas Jenkins.

The Merry Wives of Windsor runs in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre between 4 August and 22 September 2018. For tickets, please call 01789 403493 or visit:

Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall is open daily from 11.00am to 5.00pm. All visitors receive a Tudor lesson from Master Thomas Jenkins.
