WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Beatrice and Benedick would rather exchange scorching insults than sweet nothings. However, they are forced to forge a partnership in order to defend house and honor, and salvage the true love of Hero and Claudio after deceptions destroy the lovers' wedding day. Will this elicit an unexpected change of heart for the effort's unlikely collaborators as well? Shakespeare 70 presents one of the Bard's best comedies, which shows us how love can start with gossip, rumors, eavesdropping and deceit - you know, the usual – and still end in the joyous celebration of two marriages.
