EL RIO THEATRE PROJECT PRESENTS: "The Merry Wives of Windsor"
Shakespeare’s Merry Wives...  
 

Falstaff arrives in Windsor very short on money. He decides, to obtain financial advantage, that he will court two wealthy married women, Mistress Ford and Mistress Page. Falstaff decides to send the women identical love letters and asks his servants to deliver them to the wives. When they refuse, Falstaff sacks them, and, in revenge, the men tell Ford and Page (the husbands) of Falstaff's intentions.  (Wikipedia)

A sharp, smart comedy about men and women and what it takes to make love happen. While Beatrice and Benedick hide their infatuation beneath witty barbs, Hero and Claudio race to the altar. Enter the malcontent Don John, bent on ruining the wedding. He nearly succeeds, but not before Beatrice and Benedick finally tell each other how they really feel. "Much Ado About Nothing" shows us different ways how people are attracted to one another, and how their realization and definitions of "love" relate to their perceptions of this beauty.
