Backyard Bard performance coming to Ballard Commons

A local Shakespeare in the Park group will be at Ballard Commons Park this weekend with their final summer performance of The Merry Wives of Windsor.

Here’s the synopsis:

In Merry Wives the great knight Sir John Falstaff is experiencing an economic downturn. What better way to refill his empty purse than to woo two wealthy married women he’s only just met? What could possibly go laughably, horribly wrong for this beloved, famous knight? Discover the heights to which a noble suitor will pretend to aspire, and the depths to which he’ll also sink, just to win the hearts and coffers of women much, much smarter than he.

The production group GreenStage is wrapping up their outdoor plays for the season — Ballard’s performance will be their last this summer.

The Backyard Bard version of Merry Wives will be held on August 24th at 7pm at the park and is free and open to the public.
