WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Is falling in love only for the young? Not according to Joe Dowling's take on Shakespeare's romantic comedy Much Ado About Nothing. The play centers on two couples: young lovers Claudio and Hero and middle-aged Lord Benedick (played by Daniel Gerroll, A Christmas Carol) and Beatrice (Irish stage and screen actress Dearbhla Molloy), sworn enemies who become the victims of a clever scheme. In a world where everyone eavesdrops, meddles and minds others' business, Benedick's friends fool him into believing Beatrice loves him and the women do the same for Beatrice. Thus begins their inevitable and entertaining journey to finding true love late in life. Complete with themes of infidelity and deception, not to mention the ever-present Shakespearean clowns, this charming exploration of love and marriage, friendship, and honor, delivers music, dancing and merriment, proving that falling in love is for everyone, young and old.
