The Merry Wives of Windsor | March 3

Texas Union Theater
Wives may be merry, and yet honest too. - IV.ii

Urban legend claims that Queen Elizabeth asked Shakespeare to write a play featuring “the fat knight in love.” In the effervescent The Merry Wives of Windsor, Falstaff may not be truly in love, but he is certainly in lust. The objects of his desire, two clever Windsor wives, team up to outsmart and outmaneuver one of Shakespeare’s wittiest and most beloved bad boys. Shakespeare blends romance, farce, and festival in his liveliest and most affectionate portrait of domestic life in Elizabeth’s England. Audiences now, as then, cannot resist this comic confection.

Henry IV, Part 1 | March 4

Texas Union Theater
I know you all, and will awhile uphold
The unyoked humour of your idleness - I.ii

Paired with Merry Wives, Henry IV, Part 1 is a thrilling and poignant coming-of-age story.  Shakespeare gives audiences the whole world: the fabulous fat knight, the troubled king, the hot-blooded warrior, the prodigal prince, and the crew of big-hearted Eastcheap rabble rousers. Henry IV, Part 1 is Shakespeare’s masterful exploration of family and friends, honor and happiness, and those moments when we are forced to choose between the thing we desire and the thing we know we must do.
