Much Ado About Nothing
by William Shakespeare

MAAN Simple.png

Comedy, romance, and strife abound!

The war is over. Pedro Prince of Aragon, with his followers Benedick and Claudio, visit Leonata, Governor of Messina, mother of Hero, and aunt of Beatrice. Claudio falls in love with Hero and their marriage is agreed upon. Beatrice and Benedick despise love and engage in comic banter. The others plot to make them fall in love with each other, by a trick in which Benedick will overhear his friends talking of Beatrice's supposed secret love for him, and vice versa.

Meanwhile, Donna Joan, the prince's misanthropic illegitimate sister, contrives a more malicious plot with the assistance of her follower Borachio: Claudio is led to believe that he has witnessed Hero in a compromising situation on the night before her wedding day – in fact, it is her handmaiden Margaret with Borachio. Claudio denounces Hero during the marriage ceremony. She faints and on the advice of Benedick, who is convinced of her innocence, Leonata announces that she is dead. Beatrice demands that Benedick should kill Claudio. How will such an egregious ask be answered? Join Penguin in seeing how all told will unfold!

"Friendship is constant in all other things, 
Save in the office and affairs of love."

"Thou and I are too wise to woo peaceably."

"When I said I would die a bachelor, I did not think I should live till I were married."
