Falstaff (Anthony Quayle), finding himself in need of funds, attempts to seduce 2 wealthy young ladies, Mistress Ford (Joyce Redman) and Mistress Page (June Jago). Alas, the scoundrel's money-making scheme goes awry when he sends the ladies - who are friends - identical love letters. The 2 women retaliate by plotting his downfall - with hilarious results.

    " I love that Shakespeare writes strong, witty women. The Merry Wives, Mrs. Ford and Mrs. Page are very capable of taking care of themselves as they outwit jealous husband and ridiculous knights. This will be a very fun to play to see at the Festival this summer. "

    " another case of "forgotten more than you (whippersnapper) has yet learned." time to reread. "

    " I may like it better on another reading--I miss most of the puns on first readings. My first impression is that it reads like Abbot and Costello. "

    " I actually really like Shakespeare's comedies. This one cracked me up, and I loved that there were three story lines going on at once. Shows truly brilliant writing! :) "
