It's an evening of mischief and merriment as Intrepid Shakespeare Company presents the original battle of the sexes, Much Ado About Nothing. This witty romantic comedy shows how love brings out both the best and worst in us. Fun-loving, confirmed bachelor Benedick returns from a victory at war only to find himself caught up in another battle: a war of wits and words with the acid-tongued, headstrong Beatrice. Though they've each sworn off romance, their "merry war" of clever insults reveals the growing attraction between them. Meanwhile, Benedick's fellow soldier Claudio is head over heels for Hero, the governor's daughter. They will soon be wed ... if the treacherous Don John doesn't ruin everything first. At once passionate, sexy and blindingly funny, Much Ado About Nothing is filled with some of the most brilliant comedic repartee ever written. Learn More
