I will find you twenty lascivious turtles ere one chaste man”
On our Summer Festival stage, Delaware Shakespeare presents The Merry Wives of Windsor, Shakespeare’s ridiculously bold comedy of wooing and trickery.
Barrymore Award-winner Krista Apple, Beatrice in last summer’s Much Ado About Nothing, directs this raucous production with all-original music by Michael Hahn.
It’s our 17th summer of Shakespeare under the stars. Join Shakespeare’s larger-than-life comic creation Falstaff and “we shall drink down all unkindness!”
Presented in partnership with New Castle County Department of Community Services and Matthew S. Meyer, New Castle County Executive.
