The Merry Wives of Windsor

Sir John Falstaff is in financial difficulties. He has no money and his men are accused of conning some of the locals out of their money. He decides to fix his financial woe by seducing the wives of two wealthy merchants.

Mistress Ford and Mistress Page receive identical letters from Falstaff and take revenge by playing tricks on him when he comes calling.

Meanwhile all eligible men in town are in love with Anne Page and are all trying to marry her. From Doctor Caius to Slender to Fenton, there are many competing for her heart.


Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor is a raucous comedy filled with some of The Bard’s most famous characters. Performed in the New Fortune Theatre, this show promises to be a fun time for everyone. The outdoor setting and large open stage means you will get to experience Shakespeare similar to how it was originally conceived, with the space around the stage being standing room only.

For two weeks only, make sure you don’t miss out on seeing what the Mistresses Ford and Page are able to concoct in their revenge on the tricky John Falstaff.
