Much Ado About Mathletes

    Very funny, exuberantly theatrical, with a glinting edge of madness and provocative political implications.

    This is a hilariously clever play! The Shakespeare nerd in me really appreciates the choice of style, and the actor in me is jealous of any actress who gets to play Lydia. This play is full of great roles! I can easily see this being a very appealing play for High School and University performances.
