The Merry Wives of Windsor Cast list for 5 players

Play Index & Help

This cast list provides parts for 5 players to read The Merry Wives of Windsor. Each player selects the Player No they’ve been allocated, and can choose to read their parts in  Highlit text format, or Parts and Cues, as the prefer, by clicking on the appropriate link underneath the characters being played by that player. Note that with only five players, each player will be reading more than one main part. To help distinguish which part they’re reading at any one time, it may be helpful to use different accents for each part. The following accents would suit a ‘British’ play-reading:

Sir Hugh Evans: Welsh accent
Dr Caius:             French accent
Mistress Quickly: Posh accent for gentry, working class for others (e.g. Dora Bryan)
Sir John Falstaff: Pompous knight
Host:                    Estuary / Cockney with a fancy turn of phrase.
Pistol:                  Estuary / Cockney actor
Nym:                   Estuary / Cockney
Fords & Pages:    Windsor Middle Class English.
Shallow:              Doddery Old Man
Slender:                Posh, nice, but very dim.
