The Merry Wives of Windsor by William Shakespeare
Join us for the 2018 Illinois Shakespeare Festival!
The disreputable, but lovable, Falstaff is in rare form in Shakespeare’s most farcical play. Back from the battlefields, Falstaff romantically pursues two wealthy wives to feed his considerable appetite for all things. Their sharp wit and charming manipulation are a hilarious mismatch for the braggart solider.
Festival veteran Steven Young returns to reprise his portrayal of Falstaff.
