Theatre, Chatsworth Centre, West Gate, Long Eaton
Much Ado About Nothing is a comedy, and a love story. Count Benedick has
returned from war, and openly spars with Beatrice, the cousin of Hero.
They are suited to one another, but neither will admit it, and both
swear to never marry. Hero's father Leonato, among others, plots to get
the two together.
Young Count Claudio has also returned from the war, and meets the lovely
Hero. He asks her to marry him, and she consents. On the night before
the wedding, the devious Don John tricks Claudio into believing that
Hero has cheated on him, and he humiliates her at the altar. Her father
tells Claudio that she has died from grief a few days later.
Claudio is told he must marry a cousin of Hero's to make amends for the
wrong he did to Hero. When he reaches the altar, he marries the girl
without seeing her face. When he lifts her veil, he finds that he has
actually married his beloved Hero. Beatrice and Benedick talk to one
another, egged on by their friends, and also confess their love to one
