Much Ado About Nothing -  A comedy by William Shakespeare

Directed by Matthew Freeman.

Much Ado About Nothing is generally considered one of Shakespeare's best comedies, because it combines elements of robust hilarity with more serious meditations on honour, shame, and court politics.
It was probably written in 1598 and 1599, as Shakespeare was approaching the middle of his career.

The play is set in Messina and revolves around two romantic pairings that emerge when a group of soldiers arrive in the town.

Benedick and Beatrice don't love each other but then they do. Claudio and Hero love each other but then they don't but then they do again.
