Mexico, 1910. Claudio, pining for his love Hero, returns home from the first wave of revolution. 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.

Shakespeare’s classic tale of antagonistic romance and madcap humour, Much Ado About Nothing, explodes onto the Globe stage in a fusion of Latin music, desert flowers and revolutionary politics in this bold new production.
