By William Shakespeare Director Kit Fugrad

“Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps.”

Shakespeare’s comic romance is set amidst the high spirits of a post-war house party. Don Pedro, Claudio, Benedick and all their troops, recently returned from deployment in Afghanistan, are able to relax and enjoy the company and hospitality of their friend Leonato, his daughter Hero and niece Beatrice.

Claudio loves Hero and Hero loves Claudio. Nothing seems capable of tearing them apart. Benedick loves Beatrice and Beatrice loves Benedick, although neither will admit it. Nothing seems capable of bringing them together. However, these warring rivals forge a partnership in order to defend truth and honor, and salvage the true love of Hero and Claudio after deceptions wreck the lovers’ wedding day. This is a different kind of battlefield altogether.

Driven along by a romance all the more charming for being unacknowledged, and played out with an explosion of schemes, strategies and antics Much Ado About Nothing is a miracle of comic and dramatic suspense and gives us, in the bantering Beatrice and Benedick, two of Shakespeare’s wittiest, most lovable pair of lovers.

Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s most frequently produced plays around the world and has inspired at least 5 widely differing film adaptations including award-winners by Sir Kenneth Branagh (1993) and Joss Whedon (2011). Josie Rourke’s 2011 witty and inventive stage production in London’s West End starring Dr. Who favorites David Tennant and Catherine Tate, won no less than 6 Broadway.com awards (including Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director and Best Play!) and brought Shakespeare to new audiences in a fun, original and tangible way. Coronado Playhouse aims to do the same.
