The Merry Wives of Windsor AND Women in Jeopardy
by Playhouse 2000
Apr. 14 - Apr. 15 (2019)
Shakespeare's Merry Wives of Windsor portrays the farcical attempts of Sir John Falstaff to seduce his neighbors' wives.
Directed by Jessica Sturm.
In Women in Jeopardy, Thelma and Louise meets The First Wives Club in this fun and flirtatious comedy. Divorcées Mary and Jo are suspicious of their friend Liz’s new dentist boyfriend. He’s not just a weirdo; he may be a serial killer! After all, his hygienist just disappeared. Trading their wine glasses for spy glasses, imaginations run wild as the ladies try to discover the truth and save their friend in a hilarious off-road adventure.
Directed by Jeffrey Brown.
