Much Ado About Nothing at Drayton Hall Theatre
University of South Carolina Department of Theatre and Dance presents Much Ado About Nothing at Drayton Hall Theatre October 25 – November 9. Love, deception, and razor-sharp repartee take the stage in Shakespeare’s beloved comedy. The noble Don Pedro has his mind set on bringing together two romantic couples — the smitten Claudio and Hero, and the constantly bickering Benedick and Beatrice. His matchmaking efforts are foiled, however, by the scheming of the jealous, conniving Don John. Featuring some of The Bard’s most cunning wordplay and a cadre of his most colorful characters, Much Ado About Nothing is indeed a “merry war” filled with adventure, romance and unwavering wit.
