Half larger-than-life conman and half wandering knight, Sir John Falstaff, finds himself down on his luck in the town of Windsor. He decides to reverse his fortune by pursuing two women at once. When Mistress Ford and Mistress Page discover he sent them identical love letters, the women plot their revenge. As they conspire to humiliate Falstaff, Mistress Ford must contend with her husband’s overwrought jealousy and Mistress Page with her daughter’s three suitors. Uproarious, gut-busting, and deliciously ridiculous, Merry Wives of Windsor is Shakespeare’s most rollicking comedy where love finds a way and women get the last laugh.
