THE EVENT
Join us for a one-night-only, after-dark performance of Much Ado About Nothing.  Come early at 8 PM to claim your spot and grab food.  The performance starts at 10:00 PM.

THE PLAY
The war has ended, and the victorious Don Pedro, with his officers Benedick and Claudio, visits Leonato, Duke of Messina, father of Hero and uncle to Beatrice. Claudio falls in love with Hero and they agree to marry. 

Beatrice and Benedick, who despise love, mercilessly tease and insult one another and deny they will ever marry anyone, let alone one another. The others plot to make them fall in love with each other, by tricking Benedick to overhear his friends talking of Beatrice's supposed love for him, and vice versa.

Meanwhile, Don John, Pedro's illegitimate brother, sets into being a plot to convince Claudio that he has witnessed Hero in a compromising situation with John's follower, Borachio, on the night before their wedding day - in fact it is her maid, Margaret, with Borachio. Claudio denounces Hero during the ceremony. Hero faints and on the advice of Friar Frances, who is convinced of her innocence, Leonato announces that 

Hero has died. Beatrice demands that Benedick should kill Claudio.
Join us at Shakespeare On The Green this summer to see how the story plays out.
