Fine Arts – University Theatre – Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, D. Keith Best, director
The Francis Marion University Theatre will open its 2019-2020 season with William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing.
Young lovers Hero and Claudio are to be married in one week. To pass the time, they conspire with Don Pedro to set a “lover’s trap” for Benedick, an arrogant confirmed bachelor, and Beatrice, his favorite sparring partner. Meanwhile, the evil Don Jon conspires to break up the wedding by accusing Hero of infidelity. In the end, though, it all turns out to be “much ado about nothing”.
