The Merry Wives of Windsor a fast-moving situation comedy, with many colourful characters, lots of humour and physical comedy.

The plot centres on two middle-aged housewives, Mrs Page and Mrs Ford. Falstaff, a fat old military man, thinks that if he has an affair with one of them he can get his hands on some money. But he makes the mistake of sending an identical love letter to each! Outraged, they plot to be revenged. Meanwhile, three men want to marry the Pages’ daughter Anne: Mr Slender, a foolish gentleman (preferred by Mr Page), Dr Caius, a prosperous GP (preferred by his wife) and Mr Fenton, a handsome gentleman (preferred by Anne!).

How does Falstaff end up in a laundry basket? Why does the doctor challenge the local headmaster to a duel? And whatever are the children doing in Windsor Great Park at midnight?
