By William Shakespeare
Directed by Joshua Pohja 

The Bard’s famous comedic romp known for the brilliant war of words between the feisty Beatrice and the staunch bachelor Benedick, MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING plays out amidst the brittle high spirits of a post-war house party. War hero Claudio falls in love with Leonato’s daughter, Hero and their marriage is agreed upon. While marriage preparations ensue, a plot is hatched to make old flames and longtime bantering partners Benedick and Beatrice fall in love.

Despite Beatrice’s ire against Benedick and his claims to being a confirmed bachelor, when each overhears that the other is in love with him/her, he/she begins to wonder whether love between them is possible. This charming and spirited exploration of love and marriage, friendship and honor, features some of Shakespeare’s wittiest and most poignant dialogue.
