The Roving Park Players starts off the summer season with Shakespeare’s MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR. A purse-poor Sir John Falstaff concocts a scheme to woo the wives of two of the wealthiest men in Windsor, but the very savvy Mistresses Ford and Page discover his plan and lead him down a merry path of their own making! Throw in a pair of young lovers, an international gaggle of hapless wooers, and a bevy of resigned servants, and you have the riotous farce The Merry Wives of Windsor! Performances in the parks:
