The Merry Wives of Windsor

The Merry Wives of Windsor is one of Shakespeare's most popular comedies, written with iconic caricatures set like a series of modern comedy sketches. The Longueville Little Theatre Company (LLTC) signed up to the Royal Shakespeare Company's 'Open Stages' project. From 16th - 19th November 2011.
The Merry Wives of Windsor is a comedy by William Shakespeare first published in 1602, though believed to have been written prior to 1597. It features the fat knight Sir John Falstaff, and is Shakespeare's only play to deal exclusively with contemporary Elizabethan era English middle class life. It has been adapted for the opera on occasions.
