Much Ado About Nothing

Presented by Wheaton College Arena Theater and Wheaton Park District


Much Ado About Nothing is a comedy by William Shakespeare written in 1598 and 1599, as Shakespeare was approaching the middle of his career. It is considered one of Shakespeare’s best comedies because it combines elements of mistaken identities, love, and robust  hilarity with more serious meditations on honor, shame, and court politics.
