Much Ado About Nothing follows two vastly different love stories over the course of a visit. The Prince of Aragon, with his men Benedick and Claudio, visit Leonato, Duke of Messina, father of Hero, and uncle to Beatrice. It’s love at first sight for Claudio and Hero and the two quickly prepare to marry. Meanwhile, Beatrice and Benedick are known to not only despise love but also each other and are often found bantering and bickering. The others plot to trick the two into falling in love. When Hero’s virtue is put into question, the love of both couples is put to the test.
