The Merry Wives of Windsor is the only comedy that Shakespeare set in his native land. Drawing influences from 1950’s fashion, music and dance, the production will celebrate women, the power and beauty of nature, and with its witty mix of verbal and physical humor, it rejoices in a tradition that reaches right down to the contemporary English sitcom.
