Much Ado About Nothing
“Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps”
The war is over and Don Pedro’s soldiers relax at the household of Leonato, preparing for the wedding of Hero and Claudio. Meanwhile Benedick and Bertram refuse to acknowledge their obvious attraction for each other, leaving it up to their friends and family to bring these reluctant lovers together. But in the midst of all the romantic fun, dark storm clouds are gathering and a sinister plot is afoot which will test everyone’s loyalties.
Shakespeare’s wittiest comedy gets a thoroughly modern makeover as two of his most famous characters are recreated as male couple Benedick and Bertram and this, the original rom com, is given a very 21st century twist.
