Spying, subterfuge, deception, false identities, slander, manipulation, and love all take part in this wonderfully entertaining battle of the sexes. Much Ado About Nothing, thought to have been written in 1598, belongs to a group of Shakespeare’s more mature romantic comedies. It is an exuberant, philosophical, and festive play exceling in combative wit, melodrama, and potential tragedy.
This comedy is wonderfully intricate, flush with surprising twists, and articulated in expert language. Funded in part by South Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
