War has ended & soldiers return home to forget their sorrows. It looks like love is in the air. Except between Beatrice & Benedick, who are determined not to fall in love & get married, even as they can’t help engaging in daily verbal sparring matches with one another. Their friends Hero & Claudio, along with others, conspire to set them up, whether they like it or not, but ill intentions may threaten to break up more than one couple in this play. Tricks, mistaken identity, and a clueless night watchman are on the horizon in this “will they/won’t they” comedy that features one of Shakespeare’s wittiest couples.
Celebrating its 73rd season, National Players is a unique ensemble bringing innovative theater to communities large & small across the United States. Founded in 1949, National Players stimulates youthful imagination & critical thinking by presenting classic plays in invigorating ways for modern audiences.
