NEW! THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR 

by William Shakespeare

How do you con a conman? You beat him at his own game, of course!

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.”
