All of the calendars said that the GreenStage season would end August 17. It turns out the calendars were wrong! We’ll be doing one last, encore performance of our Backyard Bard version of The Merry Wives of Windsor at 7 p.m. next Saturday, August 24, 2019, at Ballard Commons Park. The park is located at 5701 22nd Ave NW in Seattle. (Map)

In Merry Wives the great knight Sir John Falstaff is experiencing an economic downturn. What better way to refill his empty purse than to woo two wealthy married women he’s only just met? What could possibly go laughably, horribly wrong for this beloved, famous knight? Discover the heights to which a noble suitor will pretend to aspire, and the depths to which he’ll also sink, just to win the hearts and coffers of women much, much smarter than he.

Enjoy this one last chance to take in this abridged version of this great play! As always with GreenStage, it’s FREE! Go see a play!
