The show, which was previously presented by AMAS at the John Houseman Theatre, re-sets Shakespeare's Merry Wives of Windsor to Texas during the Civil War era. It is conceived by John L. Haber, with a book by Haber and Robert Horn, and a score by Jack Herrick of the Red Clay Ramblers, who will also appear on stage.

John Rando is creative supervisor for the production. The creative team includes Derek McLane (sets), Jane Greenwood (costumes), Ken Billington and Paul Miller (lighting), and Tom Morse (sound).
