About this show

Marti Maraden, whose work has delighted audiences at Canada's Stratford and Shaw Festivals, directs one of Shakespeare's most popular and intelligent romantic comedies in which the playwright disarms his dueling lovers-and his audience. War ends and the confirmed bachelor Benedick returns with his regiment to civilian life, where he and a brilliant young woman named Beatrice must now declare war upon one another-and their truer emotions-until their friends decide it's time that both are felled by Cupid's arrow.
