Stephens College presents “The Merry Wives of Windsor”
February 9 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
By William Shakespeare; Adapted by Jamey Grisham
Written at the request of Queen Elizabeth I, William Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor is a boisterous comedy exploring marriage, wealth, jealousy, and exceptional fibbing. Sir John Falstaff, staying in Windsor and down on his luck, decides to restore his fortunes by seducing the wives of two wealthy citizens. Upon discovering that they’ve received identical letters, the wives take revenge by playing mischievous pranks on Falstaff when he comes a-calling. Hilarity ensues with mistaken identities, newfound love, and wholehearted forgiveness in this sparkling world premiere adaptation by Jamey Grisham.
