The Merry Wives of Windsor

Sat 01/07/2023 - Sun 01/29/2023

The lecherous Sir John Falstaff sets his sights on the wives of Windsor, leading to a side-splitting evening filled with mischief, schemes, a buck (laundry) basket, a forest full of fairies, and one giant pair of horns.

Plot Synopsis:
Sir John Falstaff, in Windsor and short of money, decides to woo both Mistress Ford and Mistress Page, prosperous citizens’ wives and sends identical letters to them. Two of Falstaff’s discharged followers, Pistol and Nym, reveal this to the husbands, though only the jealous Ford takes real notice. Going to the Garter Inn, disguised as a “Master Brook,” he asks Falstaff to woo Mistress Ford on his behalf and learns that the knight already has an assignation. The Wives prepare to trick Falstaff. At the same time, other complex love-matters are in progress. The French physician, Caius, in love with Anne Page, has challenged Parson Hugh Evans to a duel, simply because Evans has asked the doctor’s housekeeper, Quickly, to help the foolish Abraham Slender to Anne’s hand. Actually, Anne – as we have seen in Act I – is in love with Master Fenton who has already enlisted the versatile Quickly as an ally. Caius and Evans are reconciled by the Host of the Garter who has neatly prevented the duel.
