What if Shakespeare Grew Up in Iowa?

What Would Shakespeare Do?  WWSD?

In the Oregon Shakespeare Festival‘s production, the Very Merry Wives of Windsor, Iowa, our favorite farcical  Falstaff is a recently-failed presidential candidate who finds himself down and out in Windsor, where the wives are plentiful. So plentiful, in fact, that a few of them are married to each other, which turns this adaptation of a Shakespeare play into a hilarious look at the ever-controversial issue of same-sex marriage. Except in this Windsor, Iowa, the citizens are more concerned with comical revenge than with the sanctity of the American family, which makes this play a refreshing take on an issue that  we’re sure even Will himself would enjoy.
