When Sir John Falstaff sets out to woo a rich mistress to solve his financial worries, he soon discovers that the Wives of Windsor are more than a match for him. Love, song, laughter and merriment combine in a new musical version of Shakespeare's popular comedy.
Merry Wives - The Musical was first performed at the RSC in December 2006 as part of the Complete Works festival. The production featured Simon Callow as Falstaff and Judi Dench as Mistress Quickly, with music by Paul Englishby.
