Every year, the Humber River Shakespeare company brings one of Shakespeare’s great plays to the Alton Mill Arts Centre. On Thursday, July 16th, from 7–9 p.m., the company will be presenting the Bard’s immortal comedy of love, marriage, and trickery, “Falstaff and The Merry Wives of Windsor”, outdoors in the Annex at the Alton Mill. Hard up for cash, the unscrupulous Falstaff hatches a crazy plan that can’t possibly backfire – to cuckold Windsor’s wealthy husbands and get his greedy paws on their money. However, the merry wives devise a scheme of their own to teach him a well-deserved lesson in Wooing 101. Even with an ego as big as his voracious appetite, Falstaff’s silver tongue cannot prevent the payback to come. Set in the electric and “Far Out” world of the 1960s, and featuring puppets, original music and some audience participation, this hilariously magnificent treat of artful deceit is not to be missed. The Humber River Shakespeare Co. is a professional touring company that brings the joy of theatre to towns across Ontario.
