At an elegant 1940’s dinner party, eight members of an acting troupe have decided to act out Shakespeare’s brilliant romantic comedy to entertain their friends – you, the audience. Sitting around the table, what starts out as a simple reading of the play, turns quickly into an inventive and gleeful staging of Much Ado About Nothing. Actors play multiple roles using the objects available to them from their dinner.
This all-star Vermont cast of theater professionals stars Chris Caswell and Craig Maravich as Shakespeare’s wittiest lovers, Beatrice and Benedick, and features Ethan Bowen, Lindsay Pontius, Steve Small, Eric Reid St. John, Madeleine Russell and Maren Langdon. Adapted and Directed by Melissa Lourie.
