Merry Wives Picture

The African-American Shakespeare Company, one of San Francisco's treasures, will present their version of The Merry Wives of Windsor from May 4-26 at the Buriel Clay Theatre in the African-American Art & Culture Complex.

Directed by Becky Kemper, this production is set in the 1960’s in the shared back yards of a city neighborhood, and adopts the style of the popular urban black theater movement known as the “Chitlin Circuit.”
