Men return from war to a masked ball at the house of Leonato, where the young, beautiful Hero falls in love with dashing soldier Claudio, and the young lovers dive into marriage. Soppy notions of love are not for seasoned singles Beatrice and Benedick, they prefer a spot of verbal jousting.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision. Please email our Customer Care team to find out more about your chosen show.
