Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies. At its center are two couples, polar opposites in their courtship: Beatrice and Benedick, who trade barbs with the speediest wits, and Hero and Claudio, who are sweetly infatuated with the joy of first love. At the beginning, Benedick distrusts all women to the point of swearing off ever marrying, whereas Claudio sees only beauty and perfection in his dear Hero and marriage as a dream. When the steadfastness of the two gentlemen is put to the test, however, which of them stands by their love?
Improbable Fiction Theatre Company, a project of Nickel Plate Arts, is giving this classic a twist, setting it just after the American Civil War near the Mason-Dixon Line.
Performances will be held at The Cat Theatre (254 1st Ave. SW, Carmel, IN 46032).
Tickets are $17 and can be purchased through Nickel Plate Arts.
