Comment:        SHK 15.0589 Merry Wives of Windsor and Falstaff

Our experts have discovered that Falstaff's obesity can readily be
rendered by the judicious strapping of copies of the Norton Facsimile of
the First Folio to appropriate areas of the actor's body.  In the
absence of air-conditioning, the paper's absorbent quality is always a
welcome feature. The resourceful performer quickly learns to incorporate
its rustling into quips, gestures and a range of amusing 'business'.
