The Merry Wives of Windsor is a farcical comedy written by William Shakespeare. Directed by John McKerrow, Producing Artistic Director, Shakespeare in Paradise was named “Best New Theater Company in SW Florida”.
Sir John Falstaff (Jim Corsica) conspires to seduce Mrs. Page (Mary Anne McAvoy McKerrow) and Mrs. Ford (Victoria Diebler), the wives of two prominent Windsor citizens. The insanely jealous Mr. Ford (Mark Vanagas) hires Falstaff to reveal her suspected infidelity. With lightning-quick timing and ridiculous disguises and comical antics, the audience is sure to find pleasure in the humiliation of Falstaff and the way the wives dupe both Falstaff and Mr. Ford.
“The Merry Wives of Windsoris arguably the most light-hearted and funny of Shakespeare’s plays. He truly understood the reality of human relationships. The raucous and imperfect interactions between men and women in this battle of the sexes are as entertaining today as they were 400 years ago when Queen Elizabeth and Shakespeare’s audiences cried out to see Sir John Falstaff in love, says John McKerrow.”
