The Merry Wives of Windsor


BBC presents the classic play by William Shakespeare. Oscar-winner Ben Kingsley stars with Judy Davis and Richard Griffiths in Shakespeare's comedy of romantic misdemeanors. Sir John Falstaff devises a plan to seduce both Mistress Page and Mistress Ford, the wives of two wealthy burgesses of Windsor. But the ladies resolve to play a number of cruel tricks on him and he soon finds himself the butt of their jokes. As his humiliation escalates, Falstaff's hopes are finally and cruelly dashed late one night in Windsor Forest.
