The Merry Wives of Windsor
Shakespeare & Company
About The Merry Wives of Windsor
Sir John Falstaff vastly underestimates the Merry Wives in the town of Windsor as he hatches a frothy scheme to drain their bank accounts and drive their husbands insane with jealousy. Antics ensue as Falstaff (a favorite character of Queen Elizabeth herself!) overestimates his own ability to dupe good people and pull off his scheme of deceit. With "The Merry Wives of Windsor," a comedy perfectly suited to the garden theatre setting, Shakespeare proves that the best human foibles are the ones we can laugh at.
