This gutsy farce centres on the equally gutsy Sir John Falstaff, a fat knight in Elizabethan England who imagines that Mistress Ford and Mistress Page are both attracted to him. Eyeing their husbands' money, he decides to woo them both, but the women are up to the old lecher's tricks and turn the tables on him with a series of humiliating assignations, midnight terrors and a very damp and smelly laundry basket.
