Claudio and Hero are deeply in love. Beatrice and Benedick would rather swap sassy insults than sweet nothings — their banter betraying their love and loathing of each other.
However Claudio is quickly seduced by envy and this idyllic world threatens to come tumbling down as he humiliates Hero. Beatrice and Benedick must join forces to defend true love — even if they can’t recognise it in themselves.
Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s contemporary comedies where romance is thwarted by dastardly plots, misinformation, false accusations, broken promises, and bumbling cops. Or is it?
