A Critique on The Merry Wives of Windsor by Laurel Mulkey Being as this was my first live play experience, The Merry Wives of Windsor, by Monty Downs, was absolutely thrilling. Now, I’ve most definitely seen the play but getting to watch it live, especially after seeing some recognizable faces, made the play so much more enjoyable. This play was never one of my favorites, however, the Experimental Theatre did such an amazing job in making the play more modern that it might now be one of my favorites. Now to the acting.

An easy example of this is when Falstaff went to meet Mistress Ford, (purely to seduce her for money), and he came up behind, grabbed her, and consistently gave unwanted touches even though Mistress Ford was clearly uncomfortable.
