FBN Theatre Presents: William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing
Fly By Night Theatre Company presents Much Ado About Nothing, a modern take on Shakespeare's beloved comedy.
Our two pairs of lovers (Beatrice & Benedick and Claudio & Hero) now fall in love in the waning days of the 2011 federal election, as soldiers return from Afghanistan and Hero's mother Leonata fights for re-election. Inviting the returning soldiers into her home, Leonata sets the stage for a week of mistaken identity, flirtation, secrets overheard, and a plot against her daughter's impending marriage. The desires and verbal sparring of Shakespeare's outstanding play take on new meaning in 2011's Toronto as truths follow misunderstandings and love is found where you least expect it. Join us May 8-11 at Young People's Theatre (Studio space) at 8 p.m.
