Director's Scene Analysis of "Much Ado About Nothing"

Pick a short scene from Much Ado About Nothing (no longer than 5 minutes in actual reading or performance time), and explain how you would direct the scene if you were the director of the show. This means you must address issues like set and costume in order to determine how your actors will move (blocking) through the scene. So your discussion should address the following questions:
1. What does the scene look like?

2. What period is the play taking place in?

3. How are the actors dressed and why?

4. How do the actors move through the scene? What motivates that movement?

5. Do the actors have any props that are essential to the scene?

6. What's the primary emotion you want each actor to carry through the scene? Use the text to help support your choices.
