Join Melbourne's funniest Shakespeare company on a whirlwind adventure of love, longing and laughter in Shakespeare’s original 'rom-com', Much Ado About Nothing.

For the starry-eyed young couple Claudio and Hero, love is in the air. That is if they can take their eyes off each other long enough to avoid being deceived by dastardly Don John.

For the bantering and bickering Beatrice and Benedick, love is a battlefield. Once bitten and twice shy, the sharp-witted pair are locked in a verbal fencing match. Is there anything their friends can do to open their eyes to their true feelings for each other?

William Shakespeare's raucous romantic comedy is the timeless tale of two pairs of very different lovers, the people who want them to be together, and the people who try to rip them apart.

See Shakespeare like it should be under the stars in this hilarious new production at the St Kilda Botanical Gardens this December.
