The Merry Wives of Windsor

The Bishops' House presents  
Boise Bard Players performing William Shakespeare's "The Merry Wives of Windsor"

Friday, July 22 @ 7:00 pm
Saturday, July 23 @ 7:00 pm
Sunday, July 24 @ 2:00

The Boise Bard Players brings one of Shakespeare’s funniest comedies to the Treasure Valley this July. See the show that is rumored to be commissioned by Queen Elizabeth I after watching the character, John Falstaff, in Henry IV Parts I and II.

Plot Summary:
Of all Shakespeare’s comedies, The Merry Wives of Windsor is the one that most resembles a modern sitcom. It all begins with John Falstaff’s plan to woo both Mistress Page and Mistress Ford by sending them each the same letter professing his love. When the women discover they received the same letter, they begin plotting revenge on the knight. Meanwhile, the jealous Ford believes his wife to be unfaithful and sets out on his own plot to catch her in the act. Under the guise of “Master Brook,” Ford gets close to Falstaff to get proof.

We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.

A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved -- I do not expect the house to fall -- but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other.

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.

Let us have faith that right makes might, and in that faith, let us, to the end, dare to do our duty as we understand it.

I do the very best I can, I mean to keep going. If the end brings me out all right, then what is said against me won't matter. If I'm wrong, ten angels swearing I was right won't make a difference.

Our safety, our liberty, depends upon preserving the Constitution of the United States as our fathers made it inviolate. The people of the United States are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.
