Summary:

With his wedding a week away, Claudio can't wait to marry the beautiful young Hero. To distract him, his best friend Don Pedro devises a mischief: a romantic trap for arrogant confirmed bachelor Benedick, and the sharp-tongued Beatrice, his favorite verbal jousting partner. For Beatrice, the man she loves to hate may well be the perfect foil for her in their "merry war" of the sexes. The amusement is almost spoiled by the jealous scheming of Don John, but love and laughter prevail when the local constable unwittingly exposes the plot--and all the trouble proves to be "much ado about nothing."
