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?
