THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR: Tue 19 – Sun 24 July 2022

 Queen Elizabeth I, requested a play about ‘the fat Knight, Falstaff’ in love, and here it is, one of the most loveable and funny comedies! Hard-up Sir John Falstaff attempts to restore his fortunes by wooing the goodly (cheeky) ‘merry wives’ of two wealthy citizens – but they are more than a match for him! When suspicious husband, Master Ford, hears of Falstaff’s plan he decides to test his wife’s fidelity by pretending to be someone else and paying Falstaff to seduce his own wife, twice nearly catching them together! Jealousy and confusions abound in a hilarious laughter-filled entertainment for all!
