The Merry Wives of Windsor

  • Historic Linden Grove Cemetery & Arboretum 401 West 13th Street Covington, KY, 41011 United States (map)

Join us Thursday, July 20th at 7pm at Historic Linden Grove Cemetery & Arboretum for the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company's rendition of the Merry Wives of Windsor! This will be a fun, family-friendly activity....and it's free!



How do you con a conman? You beat him at his own game, of course! That’s the lesson learned by Shakespeare’s legendary comedic cad, Sir John Falstaff, as he tries to remedy his financial woes by chasing two happily married women–using the same scam at the same time. But it’s not long before these witty wives sniff out his scheme, turning the tables on their would-be wooer and illustrating emphatically that “wives may be merry and yet honest too.”
