Abilene Shakespeare Festival presents "The Merry Wives of Windsor" by William Shakespeare in Fulks Theatre. Directed by Adam Hester. Shakespeare's hilarious and brilliantly constructed farce, The Merry Wives of Windsor, finally comes to the Abilene Shakespeare Festival. Adam Hester has reimagined this piece as a variety show capturing current social and political themes through the lens of Saturday Night Live.  Imagining that Mistress Ford and Mistress Page have fallen for him, the fat knight Sir John Falstaff decides to seduce them both, as much for their husbands' money as for their personal charms. Wise to the old rogue's tricks, the women turn the tables on him with a series of humiliating assignations and a very damp, extremely smelly laundry basket. Free Admission. Season subscribers will be seated first. Doors open at 7 p.m. Recommended for ages 10 and older.

June 23, 29-30, 7:30 p.m.

Abilene Shakespeare Festival presents "The Merchant of Venice" by William Shakespeare in Fulks Theatre. Directed by Gary Varner. Gary Varner brings an exciting new take on Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice using five actors to play all the roles, except for Shylock, the antagonist and tragic character (played by Adam Hester) at the center of the drama. This uncompromising production explores the tense relationship and prejudices between those that have, and those that have not. Dark in its humor and romantic hijinks, The Merchant Of Venice takes audiences on a journey of love, mercy and justice. Free admission.
