Much Ado About Nothing
2016 Fall Performance
Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare
Much Ado About Nothing, or Much Ado as it is commonly nicknamed, is one of Shakespeare's most renowned comedies. In this Shakespearean farce reset in post-WW1 New Mexico, Hero and her groom-to-be, Claudio, team up with Claudio's commanding officer, Don Pedro, the week before their wedding to hatch a matchmaking scheme. Their targets are sharp-witted duo Benedick and Beatrice -- a tough task indeed, considering their corresponding distaste for love and for each other. Meanwhile, meddling Don John, the bastard brother of Don Pedro, plots to ruin the wedding.
