A roaring 1920s adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing – accompanied by original music, 1920s swing band and trapeze artist. Much Ado About Nothing is a comedic play by William Shakespeare, generally considered one of his best comedies, because it combines elements of robust hilarity with more serious meditations on honor, shame, and court politics. Benedick (Anthony Cule) and Beatrice (Lydia Huhne) are tricked into confessing their love for each other, and Claudio (James G. Nunn) is tricked into rejecting Hero (Clemmie Reynolds) at the altar on the erroneous belief that she has been unfaithful.
