Much Ado Out West
Written by Wade Bradford
Presented by McKinney Repertory Theatre
Directed by Jared Seman
Co-Director: Lindsey Humphries
Returning home from the Civil War, the men expect to return to their cowboy ways – only to find the womenfolk have been successfully roping & ranching in their absence. Despite how much the cowpokes and the ladies of the ranch taunt each other, love seems to be in the air. This Western romp melodrama is inspired from Shakespeare’s hilarious battle-of-the-sexes romantic comedy, “Much Ado About Nothing.”
