Hero is dead.

The night before the funeral, the strange circumstances of her death hang in the air – are the rumours about Hero to be trusted? At her coffin, the eye of the storm, her fiance Claudio is wracked with grief and guilt.

When Hero’s sharp-tongued cousin Beatrice arrives, closely followed by notorious playboy Benedick, Claudio sees a way to atone for former wrongs and do one last thing for Hero – he will bring this prickly pair together.

But extreme emotional circumstances can make you act in peculiar ways. What might you do to ease the pain? Would you abandon yourself to recklessness? Could you laugh through the tears?

Using only Shakespeare’s original text, David Fairs re-orchestrates Much Ado About Nothing into a new, parallel dark comedy.
