Much Ado About Nothing is widely considered to be Shakespeare's best comedy. This joyful play combines mistaken identities and robust merriment, with honor and court politics. Benedick and Beatrice battle their love with a merry war of wits, while Claudio and Hero’s romance is challenged by rumor and deceit. Will love triumph with two happy marriages? A memorable masterpiece! Written 1599.
