Featuring the infamous knight, a Welsh parson, a flamboyant hotel owner, a drunk pickpocket, and many more memorable characters. This interactive version of the play brings the bard’s crazy array of characters to life, all played by one (very fit) actress.

Sir John Falstaff, the fat knight, is coming to town. Short of money to pay his men, Falstaff attempts to woo Mistress Page and Mistress Ford at the same time. When the wives discover his intentions, they seek revenge – getting the whole town of Windsor involved in the process!
