Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing.
Island Stage Left re-opens to live audiences with Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing, July 8-August 8 on the Wold Road outdoor stage! Actors from all over the US have come to Friday Harbor to make this a show to celebrate.
Shakespeare’s wittiest comedy takes place in a world emerging from wartime, eager for sunshine and laughter. But a series of sly tricks – some well-intentioned, some thoroughly vicious – throw this little world into doubt and confusion. Who can you trust? Your lover, your friend, your brother? Sophisticated aristocrats, or a dim-witted constable and his poor-but-honest assistants? By the time Shakespeare finally unmasks all the plots, we’ve laughed a lot but we’re a touch more thoughtful, too.
Director Helen Machin-Smith sets the story at an English country estate, during the summer of 1919. The costumes, music and manners of that era give special zest to this tale of trust and suspicion at work in human hearts.
