Directed by Globe Associate Director Matthew Dunster.

Part of Emma Rice’s Summer of Love Season.
Claudio, pining for his love Hero, returns home from the first wave of the revolution.
Though Claudio’s friend Benedick loves Beatrice and Beatrice Benedick, but (because neither will admit it) nothing seems capable of bringing them together.
Only the intrigues of a resentful prince force Benedick to prove his love for Beatrice - by vowing to kill his best friend.
