Benedick is never getting married. Not ever. And Beatrice can’t imagine loving a man she can’t tolerate! They might just be the perfect couple. While the villain Don Jon sows seeds of rumor and discord, the success of two noble marriages hinges on the hilarious efforts of local constables.
The giddiness of the game of love, tempered by conspiracy, enflames this wittiest and most enchanting of Shakespeare’s romantic comedies. The light-hearted story is set against the turmoil of a civil war that explores how cunning, mischief and alternative truths can unravel reputations and relationships.
