William Shakespeare’s Merry Wives of Windsor
Director: Alyssa Jackson
Sir John Falstaff is up to his usual tricks, attempting to swindle Mistress Page and Mistress Ford, intending to gain access to their husbands’ wealth. Mistress Page and Mistress Ford decide to teach him a lesson. Meanwhile, Anne Page, who loves Fenton, must submit to the clumsy wooing of Slender, whom her father supports, and of Caius, whom her mother encourages. As Falstaff continues to try to woo the canny women of Windsor, hilarity ensues.
