William Shakespeare: The Merry Wives of Windsor

Sir John Falstaff decides to fix his financial woes by seducing the wives of two wealthy merchants. The wives find he sent them identical letters and take revenge by playing tricks on Falstaff when he comes calling. With the help of their husbands and friends, the wives play one last trick in the woods to put Falstaff’s mischief to an end.

Come and experience the Bard at his funniest in this most farcical of romps!
