Merry Widows of Windsor

Event Details

Join us this summer for a bold new production of Shakespeare’s bawdy classic, The Merry Wives of Windsor. Merry wives centers around one of Shakespeare’s most beloved buffoons, John Falstaff, as he attempts (and fails) to trick the cunning wives of two wealthy gentlemen into giving him their husbands’ money. The production will take place on our two-story portable Alexander Clark Playhouse stage, generously gifted to Elm by Elm by Technolutions CEO Alexander Clark in 2022. Helmed by seasoned & acclaimed director Dawn Monique Williams, this hilarious play will invite audiences from all walks of life to engage in an evening of radical anachronism with a fresh take on the bard’s classic – this is not your grandma’s Shakespeare.

The Merry Wives of Windsor will run Wednesday, August 16th through Sunday, September 3rd (Tuesday – Sunday) at 7:30pm in Edgerton Park in New Haven located at 75 Cliff Street. As always, the performances will be free to the public and picnicking prior to the performance is encouraged. More information can be found on ElmShakespeare.org
