Much Ado About Nothing 
Oct. 24, 7:30 pm, $15
Gonzaga University, Magnuson Theatre 502 E. Boone Ave., Spokane, WA    
      Rumors and romance. Deception and delight. Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing is one of his most beloved comedies. It tells the story of what can happen when matters of the heart are befuddled by gossip and mistaken identity. Director Charles M. Pepiton offers a fresh look at the characters as they balance heart, mind, and expectation living on a British colonial tea estate in India. The year is 1919. It is a time and place filled with change and uncertainty. Cultures are clashing and blending. World War I has just ended, and the men are returning from battle with one thing on their minds. As Claudio says in Act I, “But now I am returned and that war thoughts have left their places vacant, in their rooms come thronging soft and delicate desires…” This hilarious and provocative battle of the sexes shows just how enduring our human capacity is for attraction and awkwardness, betrayal and forgiveness.
