The Merry Wives of Windsor begins performances tonight at Two River Theater.

The play is described as follows: "This production of The Merry Wives of Windsor will explore the darker undercurrent of one of Shakespeare's silliest comedies. In the play, the lecherous buffoon John Falstaff decides to seduce both Mistress Page and Mistress Ford, respectable married women of Windsor. When the two women immediately see through Falstaff's plot, they decide to turn the tables on him and devise a plot of their own — for hilarious revenge.''

The cast features Nicole Lewis, Jason O'Connell, and Zuzanna Szadkowski. Eric Tucker, in addition to adapting the play, directs.

The Merry Wives of Windsor creative team includes scenic designer Lee Savage, costume designer Jessica Pabst, lighting designer Eric Southern, and sound designer Karin Graybash. The production stage manager is Brett Anders.

Performances continue through March 26.
