When I have played this game of picking Jack Falstaff for the sixth husband of
the Wife of Bath, my students have been unanimous in declaring Alice the victor
in the ensuing battle of the sexes. They don't think Falstaff could defeat her
in any argument and certainly not satisfy her in bed.  See if your students
agree.
 
Writing a play about them would today raise the problem of avoiding any
duplication of the Rumpole series with the fat talker and she who must be
obeyed.    Nevertheless, good luck on the project.

Undoubtably the key event of Jack meets Alice will be when Jack meets the Wife
of Bath!  While she will figuratively wipe the floor with him, she will
definitely have a soft spot for the old rogue.
 
Good luck with the project.
