The Merry Wives of Windsor: A Wild West Romp,” an adaptation of “The Merry Wives of Windsor” by William Shakespeare by Creighton University’s Alan Klem, will be performed at the Lied Education Center for the Arts, Main Stage, Nov. 2-6 at 7:30 p.m., and Nov. 6 at 2 p.m.
Captain John Falstaff, an ex-army officer turned outlaw, hatches a scheme to raise funds. He will seduce Mistress Ford and Mistress Page in an attempt to get at their husbands’ money. Falstaff, however, has overestimated his ingenuity; the cunning women compare their letters and – finding them identical – hatch a plan of their own to make a buffoon of the fat crook.
