Shakespeare’s brightest and wittiest of comedies
Claudio loves Hero and Hero loves Claudio, and nothing seems capable of tearing them apart. Claudio’s friend Benedick loves Beatrice and Beatrice loves Benedick, but – because neither will admit it – nothing seems capable of bringing them together. It is only the intrigues of a resentful prince that force Benedick to prove his love for Beatrice – by killing his best friend.
Driven along by a romance all the more charming for being unacknowledged, Much Ado About Nothing is a miracle of comic and dramatic suspense, and in the bantering Beatrice and Benedick it gives us Shakespeare’s wittiest, most lovable pair of lovers.
