Description of Play

 

After returning home triumphant from war, Duke Don Pedro, along with his friends and fellow soldiers Count Claudio and Benedick, visit his friend Leonato, Governor of Messina. During their visit young Claudio and Leonato’s daughter, Hero, fall in love and pledge to marry, while Hero’s cousin, Lady Beatrice, who has sworn off marriage, and confirmed bachelor Benedick, insist they have no romantic interest in each other.  Bent on sabotage, the Duke’s half-sibling, Dona Johnna plays a trick on Claudio causing him to call off the wedding, leading to the supposed tragic death of the lovelorn Hero, a ruse by the household to prove her innocence to Claudio.  The household also takes on the challenge of convincing Lady Beatrice and Benedick they love each other, in a story of unrequited love, wit and Much Ado About Nothing.
