What have we here? Meet Sir John Falstaff (John Ellis), Mistress Ford (Jennifer Hodges), and her jealous husband Master Ford (Pete Benson), stars of one of  Shakespeare’s funniest comedies!

In this hilarious 12-minute podcast, John, Jennifer and Pete have a great time telling us what the Merry Wives of Windsor is about — and they also share their insights about Shakespeare’s (always ahead of his time) underlying feminist messages.

As our visitors talk about the significance and interpretation of their roles you’ll get a delicious foretaste of how fun and entertaining the performances of Merry Wives of Windsor will be. This cast is clearly having a blast, and this is a great opportunity to join them in the merriment. 

Performances begin Thursday, July 6th and will run Thursdays – Sundays through July 23rd.  Bring your family, friends and a picnic to enjoy in the Sheep Meadow at 6 pm; the play will begin at 7.  Wine and beer will be available for purchase (proceeds benefit Bloedel Reserve).  No outside alcohol, please.
