“My dear Lady Disdain, are you yet living?” So says Benedick to Beatrice. “Is it possible disdain should die while she has such meet food to feed it as Signior Benedick?” Beatrice shoots back in reply. Thus begins the exciting clash of wits of Shakespeare’s beloved romantic comedy, Much Ado About Nothing
In this timeless tale, Shakespeare’s most reluctant lovers swear they cannot stand each other, while friend Claudio and cousin Hero cannot wait to fall in love. Benedick’s military compatriots and Beatrice’s family conspire together to trick our witty heroes into admitting their true feelings, all while the villainous Don John conspires to rip Claudio and Hero apart. Can our lovers and the blundering constable Dogberry stop the villain and save the day in time? This classic tale of Love and War begs the question: is it really all fair?
