Written at Queen Elizabeth I’s command, this perennially enjoyable and rollicking farce offers laughs galore. Sir John Falstaff – Shakespeare’s most-loved comic character – has a cunning plan to get both money and women. But a frantically jealous husband, two feisty wives, idiotically funny foreigners, and the famous laundry-basket scene see him get his come-uppance instead.
