    Great cry and little wool

    more excitement than result ; ' much ado about nothing.'

    It comes from the mystery-play of David and Abigail, in which the Devil
    is depicted shearing a pig in imitation of Nabal shearing a sheep.

    Volcano1985: here's some background, though it doesn't directly mention that particular play: Mystery play - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
