In the town of Windsor, Dr. Rumper runs a residential clinic, catering for patients suffering from nervous disorders that affect the libido. His methods are unorthodox, but are nonetheless highly effective in curing cases of acute frigidity. When Parson Bidewick's wife attends the clinic, it is not long before she overcomes her inhibitions and she, her husband, the doctor, and Matron Quiff experience a range of therapy sessions that are unforgettable for all. Victorian erotica does not get steamier than this!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 2/20/2014

    " I made a resolution this year to read all of Shakespeare's plays. So far, as of March, this is all I've read. All in all, it's fun and baudy, if a bit strange and hackneyed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Addie | 2/9/2014

    " I went and saw the play. I thought it was very funny at some parts but it was also a very long and exagerated play. I thought that the big guy who played in it was very funny! Also that the old woman in it had alot of funny parts. The ending was a little strange and sometimes it was hard to keep with what exactly was going on, but all in all it was a good play. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trelesa | 2/2/2014

    " A quick, fun comedy with notably silly characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Claire | 1/26/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben | 1/14/2014

    " It has its funny moments with the corpulent Sir John Falstaff and his escapades with Mistress Ford and Mistress Page. This is more entertaining than the side story with Anne Page and her suitors (though Shallow and Slender are both fun characters). I tend to prefer Shakespearean dramas over comedies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Loveland | 1/14/2014

    " Not my favourite Shakespeare play as it lacks the depth of the the tragedies or even some of the other comedies, but it is great fun. I would love to see this performed someday. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abe Goolsby | 1/12/2014

    " This play is to Henry IV Parts I and II what Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. is to The Andy Griffith Show. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 1/12/2014

    " Hilarious! Falstaff is such a funny character, but he definitely deserved the tricks played on him in this play. Also, the female characters are the only non-ridiculous ones in the entire play (with the exception of Mistress Quickly). They are the brains of all the schemes against Falstaff and make even their husbands look completely silly. Lots of fun! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dayna | 12/2/2013

    " Very funny, even by today's standards. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shaye | 12/1/2013

    " This book was actually pretty good and funny. I had expected it to be dull and boring. I have also played the opera Falstaff which is based on this book and it was hilarious and the music was so beautiful! Good book and opera! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robert Premeaux | 10/23/2013

    " A good mix of romantic comedy, farce and the thing that looms on the horizon for Shakespeare, the problem play ... though at best this one only hints at Measure for Measure or All's Well. Falstaff is always worth a read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsten | 10/1/2013

    " OK not great. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 9/16/2013

    " Not my favorite Shakespearean comedy, but a fun read nonetheless. This is one that would probably be more entertaining as a theatrial production rather than just reading it. I love the strong female characters in this particular play, and could see this being made into a modern adaptation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaethe | 6/29/2013

    " 1985 Aug 1 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rick | 1/26/2013

    " Falstaff. One more time... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janelle | 11/17/2012

    " The Merry Wives of Windsor is such a cheeky romp. I really enjoyed reading it as well as listening to an audio book version. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 9/7/2012

    " Don't mess with the wives! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amanda Patterson | 8/31/2012

    " Had to read it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine Mustread | 7/27/2012

    " I've gotten behind in my Shakespeare reading as well as posting reviews when I'm done. Would probably appreciate these plays more if I could focus on them with more regularity. Falstaff is buffoon-like in this play, making for comedy, but not much relationship to the Falstaff of the Henry IV plays. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lauren Tuttle | 6/14/2012

    " It was a lot of slapstick funny and not so much the ironic humor that I usually like in Shakespeare's comedies "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharon | 2/8/2012

    " Definitely not my favorite Shakespeare due to what I thought was less inspired plot and language, but an interesting read and an interesting perspective on gender relations in early modern England. "
