A new version of Shakespeare’s hilarious comedy of suburbia, wives and over-inflated egos!

Down on his luck in the suburbs, John Falstaff plans to hustle his way to a comfortable retirement by seducing the wives of two wealthy men. Unknown to him, it’s the women of Windsor who really pull the strings, orchestrating Falstaff’s comeuppance amidst a theatrical smorgasbord of petty rivalries, jealousies and over-inflated egos.
The only way is Windsor, in this outrageous and fun-filled new version of Shakespeare’s hilarious comedy.
