The Merry Wives of Windsor is the most purely farcical of all of Shakespeare’s
plays. Sir John Falstaff conspires to seduce Mrs. Page and Mrs. Ford, the
wives of two prominent Windsor citizens. The women play along with him in
order to expose him as a preposterous lecher. Then, to complicate matters,
the insanely jealous Mr. Ford disguises himself as one “Mr. Brook” and hires
Falstaff to procure Mrs. Ford for him in order to (so he plans) reveal her
suspected infidelity…. What will this all lead to?
In the Shakespeare Karaoke style of the BADht our professor Will Sutton will
guide us through the scenes and we will all act together.
