Considered one of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies, Much Ado About Nothing marries hilarity with meditations on honor, shame, and deceit. Most recently adapted by Joss Whedon (The Avengers, Firefly) for his 2013 film version, this famous work chronicles two pairs of lovers: the sparring Beatrice and Benedick, and the love struck Claudio and Hero.
The play features Beatrice and Benedick engaged in a "merry war," proclaiming their disdain of love—and for one another—in Shakespeare’s celebrated battle of the sexes. Their delightfully witty banter carries the audience along on their journey from antagonism to mutual love with copious amounts of humor and a whole lot of negotiating!

A Playful Approach to Writing
Kennedy Center Workshop
Wednesday, September 24, 2014, 4:00 PM
For teachers of Grades K – 6
For up to 30 teachers.
Playwriting offers a powerful way to interest students in writing or pre-writing processes. Participants examine ways to help students learn how to think like playwrights and to develop a script—written or pictorial—that draws on their improvisations of characters and ideas. Workshop activities are drawn from Judith Viorst’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day or another work of children’s literature.
