Shakespeare's great comedy, Much Ado About Nothing, highlights Aquila Theatre's 25th anniversary season. Spying, subterfuge, deception, false identities, slander, manipulation, and love all take part in this wonderfully entertaining battle of the sexes. The play, thought to have been written in 1598, belongs to a group of Shakespeare's more mature romantic comedies. It is an exuberant, philosophical, and festive play excelling in combative wit, melodrama, and potential tragedy. Much Ado About Nothing is wonderfully intricate, flush with surprising twists and turns, and articulated in expert language.
