Stagecraft Theatre is proud to present 'The Merry Wives of Windsor', Shakespeare’s hilarious middle-class English bedroom farce, (which, admittedly, is not actually set in a bedroom.) At his queen’s request, Shakespeare wrote a comedy showing his famously boisterous and irrepressible character, Falstaff, falling in love, although being Falstaff, he spends more time falling into much funnier things than that.

In Falstaff’s repeated attempts to woo two virtuous wives and extract money from them at the same time, he encounters a number of disasters, though this fails to put him off his plan. The wives are on to him, however, and plot to turn the tables (and other household items) on him.

Meanwhile, their husbands are getting jealous, the servants are causing confusion, and one of their daughters is trying to give two of her three suitors the slip, much to everyone’s concern (except for the third suitor of course.)

This lovable, lusty romp of a play is performed in the style of the Globe Theatre, in full Elizabethan costumes, with the wives’ spectacular costumes constructed by the Royal New Zealand Ballet costumier James Kelly. This play will be great fun for all the husbands and wives out there (and anyone else who likes a fun play for that matter!) Come to the Gryphon Theatre, Ghuznee Street, for your own Globe experience.
