By William Shakespeare

Directed by Lee Stille

Shakespearean romantic comedy - Suggested for ages 14+

Entanglements, twists and turns abound in this Shakespearean romantic comedy. Drawn together through hopeful rumor, witty warriors Beatrice and Benedick become unlikely lovers. Meanwhile, betrayed through treacherous lies, the idealistic young pair Hero and Claudio finds themselves at war. Set in the Sicilian city of Messina, this uproarious tale of love against all odds, takes its title from how “eavesdropping” can bring about “much ado”.
