The Merry Wives of Windsor

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Terri McMahon


Shakespeare could be a real charmer when he set his mind to it. Case in point, this very play. Itís so full-on funny, yet so down to earth, set amidst a middle-class burg where people love to party, and arenít above a little well‑meaning practical jokery. All this revelry urged on by Mesdames Ford and Page, two ladies whoíve got that town wrapped around their delightful little fingers. Which will come in handy when Falstaff comes calling. Heís a Knight with hilariously high self-esteem, a total lack of self-awareness and a limitless appetite for good times. The lengths he will go to find a lady to subsidize his shenanigans is endlessly entertaining. A festive, uplifting comedy with just a pinch of wickedness; a sure-fire winner on a summer evening.
