Mischief and mayhem is all in a day's work at the Aragon Advertising agency in the sultry city of Messina. The deals are fast and the women faster. Leonato, the company president, welcomes back Don Pedro, owner of the company, who has returned from a victorious lawsuit against his rebellious brother, Don John who attempted to gain control of the agency. Don Pedro returns with: Don John, now "reconciled" to him; Claudio, a well-respected and promising executive; and Benedick, Don Pedro's right hand man. Upon arriving at the office, Claudio quickly falls in love with Hero, Leonato's short daughter. Meanwhile, Benedick and Beatrice resume their witty war of insults. With romance in the air, the office conspires to dupe Benedick and Beatrice into falling head over heels in love wtih each other. During these happy events, Don John plots to frame Hero and convince others of her disloyalty to Claudio and ultimately to destroy the company. Will he succeed or will true love conquer all? Will pride win over affairs of the heart? Can romance survive amid deceit, gossip, and office politics? Point of You Productions presents this update to Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing.
