Shakespeare by the Bow is one of the many great traditions in Calgary during the summer. For the summer of 2022, the traditional Shakespeare by the Bow program will once again be going on the road, as Shakespeare On The Go! From July 8 to August 7, 2022, they will be visiting a variety of Calgary and area locations to present The Merry Wives of Windsor.
Hilarity ensues in this romantic farce about the misadventures of Falstaff as he seeks to deceive the wives of two wealthy merchants. Learning of his deception, the wives seek revenge with the help of their husbands. Will they get the upper hand on Falstaff or will his plan to trick them out of their riches succeed? One of Shakespeare’s wittiest comedies, The Merry Wives of Windsor has a contemporary perspective of small-town life in early England.
