Project Description

“Some cupid kills with arrows, some with traps.”


Indiana: July 21-31 | Massachusetts: August 6-29 | Delmarva: September 2-26

Upon their return from war, a group of soldiers are reminded that life and love are not so black and white. Trickery, jealousy, deceit, and masquerade each play a role in challenging Benedict and Beatrice’s scorn for love (and each other) as well as the seemingly unassailable love of Claudio and Hero. Through witty banter and dastardly deception, Shakespeare’s beloved comedy, Much Ado About Nothing debates the preconceived notion of how to love and the value of trust.

All Much Ado About Nothing performances are free, outdoors, and open to all audiences; no tickets are needed. Lawn seating, blankets, and lawn chairs welcome.

Funding for Brown Box Theatre Project’s 10 Annual Free Shakespeare tour of Much Ado About Nothing is provided in part by the Maryland State Arts Council, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, Worcester County Arts Council, Fall River Cultural Council, Webster Cultural Council, the Delaware Division of the Arts, the Salisbury Wicomico Arts Council, and Somerset County Arts Council – organizations dedicated to cultivating a vibrant cultural community where the arts thrive.
