Much Ado About Nothing

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Jon Kretzu

Performed in parks throughout the Puget Sound region

July 6, 2017–August 6, 2017


Shakespeare’s screwball comedy features the bantering of two of his cleverest characters. For Beatrice and Benedick love is a game of wits played with guarded hearts. Yet everyone can see they’re meant for each other. Newly engaged Hero and Claudio conspire to trick the pair into admitting their affections and falling for each other. But schemes are afoot to ruin everyone’s happiness through dire accusations. Will love win out in the end?
