Much Ado About Nothing
by William Shakespeare
directed by David Martin
In October, don’t miss OCTA’s very first production of the greatest English-language playwright, William Shakespeare, when we present Much Ado About Nothing, Shakespeare’s comedy of bickering lovers.
One of the most popular and charming of Shakespeare’s comedies, Much Ado About Nothing features the original battle of the sexes couple: Benedick, an arrogant and confirmed bachelor, and Beatrice, his favorite sparring partner. While Beatrice and Benedick hide their infatuation beneath witty barbs, young love blossoms as Hero and Claudio race to the altar. When the wicked Don John conspires to break up the wedding, will false accusations and misunderstandings prevent the young couple’s happy ending? Witty wordplay, passionate poetry, and clever plot twists make this the perfect romantic evening. Join us for our first-ever Shakespearean production!
