Merry Wives of Windsor: Falstaff soliloquy (to Brook) in A3S5

Play Index & Help

In this scene, Falstaff tells Brook (Master Ford in disguise) how he was very nearly caught by Master Ford, trying to seduce Mistress Page. Luckily for him, Mistresses Ford and Page, hid him in a buckbasket (a laundry basket) and two servants took him in the buckbasket and threw him and the dirty clothes into the Thames.

Of course, the scene is much funnier when Brook is present desparately hiding his upset at finding out how Falstaff escaped him, but it’s still funny told as a monologue and good practice to develop a ‘Falstaff’ character.
