The Merry Wives of Windsor

Sunday, 24th March, 5:00 am - 7:00 am

The iconic Summer Shakespeare dawn performance is BACK…and this time taking up residence at The Meteor!

Falstaff is broke and looking for the easiest way to make a quick buck. Well, with the state of the economy, can anyone really blame Falstaff for trying to earn a penny?
Struggling under the weight of financial woes, Falstaff decides to rectify this by seducing the wives of two wealthy merchants.
At the same time.
What could go wrong?

Adapted and directed by Kelsie Curtis, the classic tale of patriarchal norms and barely disguised misogyny gets a modern reimagining fit for a Joe Rogan podcast. The Merry Wives of Windsor will make you laugh but, most importantly, will make you cringe harder than listening to a white guy with a microphone and a TikTok account saying “well, actually”.

Entry is FREE (but a koha would be appreciated) and the show is at 5am, so bring a blanket, bring a chair, and get amongst the early morning magic at The Meteor Theatre!
