  • Publicity image from Merry Wives of Windsor
Festival Theatre
May 11 – October 26


by William Shakespeare
Director Antoni Cimolino 


Pursuing two respectably married women at the same time, a would-be seducer fails to anticipate that his targets will, quite literally, compare notes. Nor has he reckoned on the mischievous spirit in which the wives will use their wits and wiles to teach him the error of his ways.

Set in the 1950s, in a town not unlike Stratford, Ontario, this production brings Shakespeare’s rollicking comedy close to home – and close to our hearts.

House Program: The Merry Wives of Windsor

Production support is generously provided by Jane Petersen Burfield & family, by Dr. Desta Leavine in memory of Pauline Leavine, and by Dr. M. Lee Myers.

Support for the 2019 season of the Festival Theatre is generously provided by Daniel Bernstein and Claire Foerster.
