Much Ado About Nothing is a glorious comedic romp full of misunderstandings, bickering, love and deception. It is thought to have been written in 1598 and 1599 and is Shakespeare’s most performed comedy.
A brief summary –Claudio falls in love with Hero and their marriage is agreed upon. Beatrice and Benedick despise love and engage in comic banter.
The others plot to make them fall in love with each other, by a trick in which Benedick will overhear his friends talking of Beatrice’s supposed secret love for him, and vice versa.
Claudio is led to believe that he has witnessed Hero in a compromising situation on the night before her wedding day…..
