One of William Shakespeare's great comedies, The Merry Wives of Windsor is a hilarious tale of love and marriage, jealousy and revenge, class and wealth. In Nicola's charming and romantic adaptation, Falstaff, an aging and portly has-been gallant, simultaneously courts two married women by using identical love letters. The faithful wives plan to take revenge on the would-be Lothario. Meanwhile Anna, the young and desirable daughter of Mr. Page, attempts to outwit her parents as they choose whom she shall wed.
