The Merry Wives of Windsor

Merry-Wives-Logo-squ.jpg

The bawdy, bombastic, and chronically cash-poor Sir John Falstaff has been causing problems in the quiet town of Windsor.

When his massive bar tab outstrips his meager means, he needs to raise some cash—and quick. He hatches a plan to seduce two of Windsor's most wealthy married women, but when they catch wind of his salacious scheme, they turn the tables on their would-be wooer, joining forces to teach him a lesson he won't soon forget.
