Grab your blankets and picnic baskets as once again RTI presents our Shakespeare On The Lawn series at Salisbury House & Gardens. And for the first time, this show is being included in our season! 

"Thou and I are too wise to woo peaceably."

Much Ado About Nothing brings twists and turns, jabs and jibs in one of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies. Love abounds between Hero and Claudio but Don John looks to spoil the celebrations. Throw in a combative courtship between Beatrice and Benedick and you're in for a fun evening of love, laughter and turmoil.
