A screening of The Merry Wives of Windsor, a comedy reputed as the only play in which Shakespeare tackled the Elizabethan middle class. It’s followed on August 1 by Henry IV Part 1, on August 18 by Henry IV Part 2, and on September 15 by Henry VIII, whose staging in 1614 with an actual canon for special effects ignited and burnt down the Globe.
