Set in Toronto circa 1918, the production evokes the centenary of World War I and recalls a pivotal period in the city’s history. With Much Ado About Nothing, Single Thread Theatre Company connects its audience with the home for which Spadina Avenue was named (and subsequently mispronounced) through a re-telling of Shakespeare’s classic comedy.(
