MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING is a love story full of darkness and light, mingling laughter and sorrow and peppered with witty repartee.
Prince Don Pedro has won the war of succession with his brother Don John and along with his lieutenants, Benedick and Claudio arrive in Messina to be welcomed by Governor Leonato, his daughter Hero, niece Beatrice and sister Antonia. While Beatrice and Benedick both claim they are determined never to marry and grow increasingly sharp in their sparring, Hero and Claudio claim undying love for one another and cannot wait to plunge into marriage. Suddenly schemes abound, dangerous misunderstandings proliferate and matches are eventually made and….. unmade …in this dazzling comedy of love and second chances.
