Much Ado About Nothing director Kevin Paley says, “Heralded as one of Shakespeare’s wittiest comedies, this adaptation for our time tells the story of a group of soldiers returning to Vermont following a successful battle abroad. When they are all invited to stay under one roof, the result is a romantic comedy filled with love, deception, and mistaken identity. Performed by an all-female cast, this Much Ado explores the world of masculinity and the many ways in which it shapes our society.”
Shakespeare in the Woods is an unconventional outdoor classical theatre festival in the heart of Southern Vermont. Each production seeks to deliver a professional caliber celebration of classical text through a socially aware lens, all while embracing Vermont’s natural offerings.
Shakespeare in the Woods is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization.
