Shakespeare & Company presents William Shakespeare's madcap comedy, “The Merry Wives of Windsor” directed by founding company member and Director of Education, Kevin G. Coleman. “The Merry Wives of Windsor” runs from August 8 to September 1 outdoors in the Roman Garden Theatre.

The play begins when Sir John Falstaff vastly underestimates the Merry Wives in the town of Windsor, as he hatches a frothy scheme to drain their bank accounts and drive their husbands insane with jealousy.
