The boozing and boorish Sir John Falstaff is in Windsor looking to have fun. But he's running out of money, and so hatches a plot to woo a wealthy wife away from her husband and get her money. But instead of sending a love letter to just one woman, he sends identical letters to two: Mrs. Page and Mrs. Ford. The women learn about Falstaff's dishonorable intentions, and set out to humiliate him appropriately. At the same time, several local men are vying for the hand of Anne Page, the proprietor of the local tavern hangout plays practical jokes on various citizens, and the children of the city join in a masque to scare Falstaff. A play full of witty characters, language and word play, and practical jokes against Falstaff, The Merry Wives of Windsor is a lovely romp with a delightfully happy ending.
