MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR is Shakespeare’s sitcom – and a spinoff at that! Fat, lusty knight Jack Falstaff, made famous in the Henry IV and V plays, returns in this comedy set among the Elizabethan middle-class. Falstaff has designs to seduce two wealthy wives in town, but the wives (and one particularly jealous husband) have plans of their own for him.
Beer, wine and beverages are available for a donation.
Roles will be assigned at the beginning of the event and rotated throughout the play without regard to traditional casting considerations, to give a chance to everyone who wants to read.
We will have a limited number of copies available, so if you have a copy of your own, please bring it.
