Chalice Productions Presents: The Boaty Theatre Company's Much Do About Nothing, Bridge Wellness Gardens, Saturday, 10. August 2019

The Boaty Theatre Company in conjunction with Chalice Productions present William Shakespeare's: Much Ado About Nothing.
SYNOPSIS 
The war is over. Pedro Prince of Aragon, with his followers Benedick and Claudio, visits Leonata, Duchess of Messina, father of Hero and uncle of Beatrice.
SECRET LOVE
Claudio falls in love with Hero and their marriage is agreed upon. Beatrice and Benedick despise love and engage in comic banter.
The others plot to make them fall in love with each other, by a ***** in which Benedick will overhear his friends talking of Beatrice's supposed secret love for him, and vice versa.
THE PLOT
Meanwhile Don John, the prince's misanthropic illegitimate brother, contrives a more malicious plot with the assistance of his follower Borachio: Claudio is led to believe that he has witnessed Hero in a compromising situation on the night before her wedding day – in fact it is her maid Margaret with Borachio.
Claudio denounces Hero during the marriage ceremony. She faints and on the advice of the Friar, who is convinced of her innocence, Leonata announces that she is dead. Beatrice demands that Benedick should **** Claudio.
EXPOSED
