Sir John Falstaff is a scheming gold-digger who sets upon a dubious plan to woo not just one, but two of Windsor’s housewives! Hilarious antics ensue as the clever women quickly get wise to his plan and devise one of their own that delivers a riotously funny comeuppance to Sir John. The comic perfection and zany circumstances of this classic comedy make it a delight for audiences of all ages.
As always, this one-hour touring production travels to you with a cast of professional actors in costume, with set, props and sound track. At the conclusion of the show, which is performed in Shakespeare's original text, the cast will stay to take questions from the audience. Included are three weeks of one-hour lesson plans, written especially for teachers and indexed to California State Standards. These guides have been acclaimed as valuable resources in readily facilitating an enhanced understanding of the plot, themes, character motives, and language found in Shakespeare’s writing. Additionally, a copy of the script the cast is using is provided so that the show you are seeing may be reviewed in advance.
For even more engagement, add a PLAYSHOP - a one-hour, hands-on classroom experience that will deepen your students' appreciation of Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor.

Show may take place indoors or out, in a gym, library, theater, multi-purpose room or other spaces.
