Much Ado About Nothing

Written by William Shakespeare

Beatrice and Benedick don’t like each other.  At all.  They promise.  And they certainly don’t love each other, no matter what everyone around them says.  But when a villainous scheme threatens to tear apart the relationship of their best friends, these two frenemies will have to get over their mutual distaste of one another to ask the scariest question of all about being in love: would it be so bad if they were?
