MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR – Los Angeles Drama Club

MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR

quickly-and-falstaffSir John Falstaff decides that he wants to have a little fun, so he writes two letters to a pair of Windsor wives: Mistress Ford and Mistress Page. When they discover that they’ve both received letters, they plan a practical joke or two to teach the knight a lesson. But when Mistress Ford’s husband finds out, chaos ensues. Meanwhile, three suitors seek the hand of Anne Page, Mistress Page’s daughter, and the one she loves – surprise!! – is not the one that has Father’s Stamp of Approval!

Themes explored:

LIES AND DECEIT
This play is chock-full of people who are trying to “pull one over” on someone … and most of them get punished in some very funny ways! Are these punishments just? And what about when the punisher is also a deceiver?

SOCIETY AND GENDER
The characters in this play run the gamut from servants to nobility – we’ll explore how the different classes treat others and are treated themselves, and how different life is for women and men!

LANGUAGE AND COMMUNICATION
Merry Wives of Windsor is loaded with the kind of clever word-play and snazzy banter that makes us love Shakespeare … and with people who don’t communicate very well … which leads to a lot of hilarious misunderstandings!
