  3. The Merry Wives of Windsor

The most beloved comic characters of Shakespeare’s Henry IV plays come together in this bawdy, riotous romp, not seen at STC in more than a decade. Celebrating the 25th Anniversary by reinventing the very first production presented during the Free For All, STC is happy to bring back The Merry Wives of Windsor. Falstaff, an impoverished knight, plots to woo two wealthy wives at the same time. However, his plan backfires and the cunning wives seek revenge, bringing chaos to Windsor and embarrassment after embarrassment to Falstaff. Director Stephen Rayne, whose recent production of Sabrina Fair at Ford’s Theatre garnered rave reviews, brings a new spin on this comedy and a merry end to an exceptional season.
