Down on his luck and looking for some fun, Shakespeare's eponymous fat knight Falstaff sends identical love letters to two of Windsor's most wealthy married women: Mistress Ford and Mistress Page.
Shocked by his gall at trying to woo them both simultaneously, Mistress Ford and Mistress Page turn the tables on Falstaff and devise a series of devious and riotous pranks to punish him for his lechery. But will they be able to chastise Falstaff whilst hiding it all from their jealous husbands?
Full of larger than life characters, farcical misunderstandings, failed duels, and a Thames-soaked laundry basket large enough to hold an obese knight, The Merry Wives of Windsor is Shakespeare's gutsy and hilarious British comedy, and his only play to be set in his native country.
Performed by students from the University Of Northampton BA Acting degree and directed by Emily Jenkins, meet the rascal Sir John Falstaff and the wise wives in Shakespeare's most raucous comedy.
