Much Ado About Nothing features the beloved characters of Beatrice and Benedick who engage in a “merry war” of caustic wit before they are tricked into admitting their well-disguised love. Funny, sexy, and heartbreaking, it is everyone’s favorite Shakespeare comedy. Director Ryan Whinnem’s production will be set during the 1930s Spanish Civil War. Whinnem has been directing on area stages for more than a dozen years and served as Artistic Director at Baltimore’s well-regarded Mobtown Players, he recently completed his Masters in Theatre, Directing at Catholic University in Washington, DC.
In addition to performances, Chesapeake Shakespeare Company In-The-Ruins features pre-show entertainment that includes musicians, jugglers and stage combat demonstrations to engage the many picnickers who arrive early to enjoy the sights and sounds at Patapsco Female Institute Historic Park. The gates open 90 minutes before show time for picnicking.
