Too much time and too much wine finds a group of friends and an unlucky housekeeper trying to pass the time at an 1800s lake house. An ad hoc performance of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing keeps the estate lively as a summer evening grows dark. Together they discover love, laughs, and timing as the product of their boredom becomes a moving performance that reminds us all: the heart wants what it wants.
Reserved seating and blanket options available.
Schiller Park, Columbus, Ohio
“Of course, nothing works without the central couple of Benedick (Eberly) and Beatrice (Sue Wismar). This Much Ado soars through these two, together and apart – not only is their chemistry strong enough to support the show’s spine when so much else explodes around them, but they also capture a crucial ingredient too often overlooked: they’re always amusing themselves.” –CU Theatre critic Richard Sanford
