    Director synopsis:

    "I had rather hear my dog bark at a crow than a man swear he loves me.

    The soldiers come marching home again, and Benedick takes up arms and insults in a new “merry war” against Beatrice. Their friends conspire to trick this witty will-they won’t-they couple into confessing they are “horribly in love” with one another.

    But a more dangerous conspiracy is afoot: will Don John, the loser in battle, stop at anything to destroy his rival’s happiness? A vile plot of false accusations, surveillance, and slut-shaming threatens to transform a wedding into a funeral.

    This vibrant production of Shakespeare’s beloved Much Ado About Nothing, set in a Neo-Elizabethan dystopia, weaves together an exploration of shame and honor with enchanting screwball comedy.

    I do love nothing in the world so well as you: is not that strange?" - Katie Van Winkle

    If attending ACC Drama’s upcoming production of Much Ado About Nothing here are REVISED DIRECTIONS TO AUSTIN PLAYHOUSE:

    *Please note that due to ACC construction, the South parking lot and the loading dock entrance are currently closed.

    You will now be entering the ACC Highland campus at the intersection of Highland Mall Boulevard and Jonathan. There is a four-way stop there. Enter the parking lot on Jonathan, which will take you directly to the correct entrance on the Northside of campus. ACC will not ticket our patrons' cars.

    Take the escalator or elevator down to the lower level. Turn right. Austin Playhouse will be on your right, by the water feature.
