Richmond Shakespeare Festival, The Merry Wives of Windsor

Sir John Falstaff is up to his usual tricks. Convinced that two local women are enamored of him, he writes identical love letters to Mistress Page and Mistress Ford, intending to gain access to their husbands’ wealth.  Mistress Page and Mistress Ford decide to teach him a lesson, but unbeknownst them, their husbands have learned of Falstaff’s plans.  Down home hilarity ensues in this modern production that will have you stomping your boots and begging for more!

Duration: Approximately 2.5 hours, with intermission.

Seating: Festival seating: show up early to get the best seat. Wheelchair accessible designated seating available in the front row.

Location: The historic Starr-Gennett Factory building, Whitewater Gorge Park, 201 South 1st Street, Richmond, IN 47374 (Plan Your Visit).
