The Evansville Shakespeare Players are happy to present The Merry Wives of Windsor this weekend at Willard Library!

Here are details about the event:

"Come one, come all to the 8th Annual Shakespeare in the Park! The lovely Willard Library is the backdrop for our farcical “Merry Wives of Windsor”

Prepare for a jolly fun night as the Evansville Shakespeare Players take you back to the 1950s sitcom, complete with a witty announcer, commercials that harken back to the day, and a pair of zany house Wives that give Lucy and Ethel a run for their money! Appreciated by audiences as one of Shakespeare’s most delightful comedies, loveable rogue John Falstaff looks to add to his riches. Setting his sights on the beautiful wives of two of the most-wealthy men in the town, Falstaff gets more than he bargains for when the Merry Wives see through his scheme and plot his comeuppance. Meanwhile, one of the daughters, sweet Anne Page, fends off many local admirers including a French doctor, a lovesick boy, and the quarterback. Hilarity ensues in this farcical look into a small town beset with petty jealousies, a hilarious Welsh parson, and fairies! Bring blankets and chairs, and maybe a picnic to make an evening certain to be a fun for the WHOLE family!!!


This event is FREE to the public and features a new sound system to hear the actors better (and to help them not to compete with passing trains) but donations are always gratefully accepted!
