The Merry Wives of Windsor

By William Shakespeare / Directed by Tracy Young
Run Time: 2 hours & 31 minutes (including intermission)

Meet the rotund rascal Sir John Falstaff and the wise wives of Windsor in one of Shakespeare’s most raucous comedies. With an ego as big as his voracious appetite, Falstaff conspires to woo the two wealthiest married ladies in town and pocket their riches. However, Mistress Ford and Mistress Page devise a scheme of their own to teach him a well-deserved lesson in Wooing 101. Join us and feast on a hilariously magnificent treat of monogamously artful deceit.

Generous support for this production was provided by The Business Alliance of Great Lakes Theater.
