Much Ado About Nothing
When Don Pedro and his officers come to stay at Leonato’s house in Messina, there’s romance and mischief in the air: masked balls, wooing by proxy, and a team effort to turn old rivals Beatrice and Benedick into true lovers. But the villain Don John is up to more than mere mischief, and his “prank” could destroy lives and reputations. Better call the neighborhood watch!
Enjoy the story of Much Ado as never before in this skillful 70-minute adaptation. Playwright Andrew Biliter brings the language of Shakespeare into the present day while preserving the character, humor, and meter of the original text.
