Much Ado About Nothing

Love. War. Conspiracy. Sex. Betrayal. Death. Could all these things truly amount to Nothing? In Shakespeare’s beloved Much Ado About Nothing, Don Pedro and his men return victoriously from war to the house of Leonato, Governor of Messina. Proven in battle, Claudio proposes to Leonato’s dutiful daughter Hero, to the dismay of his comrade, Benedick, who wittily battles with the Lady Beatrice on the demerits of love. The stage is set for merry conflict as those who jest at love are caught in a conspiracy to make them fall in love. Meanwhile a sinister plot brews to unmake Claudio and Hero’s nuptials, setting in motion a series of events that challenge loyalties, test character, and examine the fickleness of life and love.
