Synopsis
The play is set in Kiambu County in the plush environs of Windsor, Falstaff makes his love and desires know not to one but two married women in identical letters. Upon comparison Mrs. Ford and Mrs. Page plot their revenge on Falstaff for being so bold and assuming. The revenge plan unveils itself with almost catastrophic but hilarious consequences. The strength of some relationships with doubts creeping and some grow ever so stronger as the inhabitants of this small town watch and are a part of the unfolding comical events that surround Falstaff amorous adventures.

The cast, we believe, represents the best of East African talent features the gigantic talent from Tanzania, Mrisho Mpoto as Falstaff as well as Ogutu Muraya, Neville Misati, Mourad Sadat, Eric Wanyama, Veronica Waceke, Sylvia Namussassi and Kitt Nyan’aya Kiarie.
