The war may be over, but Benedick and Beatrice continue to fight their merry war of words. But when Beatrice's cousin, Hero, is humiliatingly jilted by Benedick's best friend, Claudio, Benedick must choose which side he's on. But unknown to all, Claudio has been tricked by the bastard Don John, and it's up to Dogberry and Verges to solve the case.
For this year’s production, the company will take full advantage of the beautiful Italian Gardens at Maple Hayes School to stage an al fresco production of ‘Much Ado About nothing’
