American Shakespeare Center's touring production of "The Merry Wives of Windsor." Urban legend claims that Queen Elizabeth asked Shakespeare to write a play featuring "the fat knight in love." In the effervescent "The Merry Wives of Windsor," Falstaff may not be truly in love, but he is certainly in lust. The objects of his desire, two clever Windsor wives, team up to outsmart and outmaneuver one of Shakespeare's wittiest and most beloved bad boys. Shakespeare blends romance, farce, and festival in his liveliest and most affectionate portrait of domestic life in Elizabeth’s England. Audiences now, as then, cannot resist this comic confection. Music begins at 7 pm, performance at 7:30 pm. Admission $10 general, free to current Hollins students, faculty, and staff.
