Much Ado About Nothing

  • by William Shakespeare
  • directed by Catherine Weidner
  • It’s summer in Italy, and the spirit of mischief runs amok in this quick-witted comedy of mistaken identities. On the eve of Hero’s wedding to Claudio, the feisty Beatrice and the sworn-bachelor Benedick are tricked into falling in love. When an evil plot is hatched to disgrace them all, it takes a bumbling constable and his humble assistant to save the day.
