Much Ado About Nothing

Written by William Shakespeare, Directed by Lynne Perkins Socey

Earlham College, Richmond Indiana

A "mythical modern" contextualization of Shakespeare's classic, Earlham's production of Much Ado placed this wild cast of characters in Leanata's villa for their intense romp of wit, miscommunication and the occasional bout of wisdom.  The set functioned as a unit with furniture and dressing pieces shifting to suggest the variety of locations such as the tomb, church and Hero's bedroom.
