William Shakespeare: “The Merry Wives of Windsor”

 

Sir John Falstaff arrives in Windsor short of money and conspires to seduce Mrs. Page and Mrs. Ford, the wives of two prominent Windsor citizens. The women play along with him in order to expose him as a preposterous lecher. But the insanely jealous Mr. Ford disguises himself as one “Mr. Brook” and hires Falstaff to procure Mrs. Ford for him in order to (so he plans) reveal her suspected infidelity. But Mrs. Ford and Mrs. Page dupe both Falstaff and Mr. Ford. Finally, both husbands join their “merry wives” in an elaborate masque-like entertainment.
