The spirited Sir John Fallstaff proclaims his love for the two young ladies of the title, but fails to keep them separated. In revenge, the two jointly appear to encourage him, deviously tricking him into a series of amusing and trying experiences! The wives are left with their reputations intact, but the corpulent knight is once again exposed for the fool he is, buried under a pile of foul linen! One of the most playable of Shakespeare's farces, this has proven to be a success in drama festivals and competitions.
This adaptation of Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor was first produced at MacArthur High School in San Antonio, Texas in 1992.
