Former high school buddies Frank, Swaino and Packie -- now past their prime -- meet off-hours one night in Frank’s out-of-the-way repair shop under cloudy circumstances that only Frank seems to have a handle on. Enter Chad, a plugged-in, preppy college jock, whose arrival ignites a long-simmering resentment that sets this taut, twisty, thriller on its breathless course.

An 600 years of history in 6,000 seconds ... history will never be the same! From Washington to Watergate, yea verily from the Bering Straits to Baghdad, from New World to New World Order, “The Complete History of America (Abridged)” is a 90-minute rollercoaster ride through the glorious quagmire that is American History, reminding is that it’s not the length of your history that matters, it’s what you’ve done with it!

By means of “noting,” (which in Shakespeare’s day sounded the same as “nothing” and implied gossip, rumor and overhearing) Benedick and Beatrice are tricked into confessing their love for each other, and Claudio is tricked into rejecting Hero at the altar on the erroneous belief that she has been unfaithful. Benedick and Beatrice join forces to set things right, and the others join in a dance celebrating the marriages of the two couples.
