The sincere Hero (kind girl) is loved by Claudio (dashing soldier) – but through sheer malice, she’s framed as “deceitful” in a trick crafted by the jealous and disgruntled Don John. Hero is dumped at the altar until her bestie Beatrice (forceful independent upstart) insists on getting justice for Hero! What follows is both shocking and funny, with Beatrice herself finding a soul mate in her arch rival, Benedick. This classic Shakespeare comedy comes complete with a whole pack of full and colorful characters like the impossibly charming Don Pedro, the devious and mischievous Borachio, the hilariously inept Constable Dogberry, and more, and an ending that satisfies … after some hairpin plot twists!
