Falstaff A Cabaret Epic
For some years Wim has been writing a comic verse epic about the adventures of Shakespeare’s immortal rogue in the afterlife. When completed, the video will follow Falstaff through hell, purgatory, and paradise. The subtitle sort of says it all — “a cabaret epic.” It is as much a performance piece as a work of literature, and its language demands to be spoken aloud to an audience. Occasionally, Wim publicly performs Canto I of what he calls his “massive nursery rhyme for adults.” He is now making a film of this canto, entitled “Wandering Judas.” The clip is from that work-in-progress.


Falstaff book coverThe entire first canto is available in book form.
