For Claudio and Hero, it’s love at first sight, while Benedick and Beatrice have been at each other’s throats since before the war that took the men away from the Italian town of Messina. When the lovers decide to play a prank to get their friends to fall in love, Don John decides to kill the mood, attempting to sabotage the lovers’ relationship less than a week before their wedding.
The classic Shakespeare comedy Much Ado About Nothing shows how the game playing and plotting of a noble family leads to fun, intrigue, and silly misunderstandings.
