Much Ado About Nothing Matinee
September 17 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
A group of doctors arrive in Vietnam, but surgery quickly takes a back seat to romance in one of Shakespeare’s wittiest comedies. Claudio falls in love with Hero, the daughter of his host. Hero’s cousin Beatrice (a confirmed spinster) and Benedict (an eternal bachelor) are each duped into believing the other is in love with them. Claudio is deceived by a malicious plot and denounces Hero as unchaste before they marry.
Will Claudio discover the truth about Hero? Will Beatrice and Benedick tolerate one another long enough to find love?
Much Ado is set in a Vietnam-era M*A*S*H unit; Shakespeare’s timeless language and story-lines are accompanied by classic rock and Motown hits of the period.
