Much Ado About Nothing

Much Ado About Nothing

“For which of my bad parts didst thou first fall in love with me?”

While young lovers Hero and Claudio anticipate their marriage, just a week away, they amuse themselves by conspiring with Don Pedro to set a “lover’s trap” for Benedick, an arrogant confirmed bachelor, and Beatrice, his favorite sparring partner. At the same time, the evil Don John conspires to break up the wedding by accusing Hero of infidelity. Will the marriage plans be ruined? Or will it all turn out to be “much ado about nothing.” Written by William Shakespeare.
