Much Ado About Nothing

By  William Shakespeare Directed by Lavina Jadhwani

Love is a battlefield

Beatrice and Benedick bicker all the time… but their friends see a budding romance and decide to play Cupid. Hijinks, heartbreak and hilarity ensue. PlayMakers takes a fresh look at Shakespeare’s classic tale of wit and whispers. The setting is shifted to 1940's North Carolina for a thoroughly musical and joyously inclusive production sparkling with merriment for the holiday season.
