The story revolves around an older fat knight named Sir John Falstaff who comes to town hard pressed for money. He devises a plan to woo two wives (Mrs. Page, and Mrs. Ford) and then leech off of their husband’s money by writing them each a love letter, and confessing his desires for them. Mrs. Page and Ford, both good friends and not fools, realize the Knight had written them identical letters, and spend the rest of the play pranking and playing tricks on him to teach him a lesson. The play also involves the marriage of Mrs. Page’s daughter Anne.  Anne’s parents each support a different suitor for her to marry; the eccentric French Physician Dr. Cauis, and a local middle class idiot, Abraham Slender.  Neither has her heart, and she searches for a way to marry one that she truly loves.
