Bard on the Beach has returned this summer to once again present top-notch performances in Vancouver’s most stunning setting. Starting June 12, Much Ado About Nothing will take to the main stage to open up the season.
Romance and matchmaking abound when the men return victorious from war. While friends devise merry plots to trick the fiercely independent Beatrice and Benedick into admitting their love for each other, Hero and Claudio make idealistic wedding plans. Into this world of courtship, light-hearted mischief and wit, Shakespeare places Don John, a â€œplain-dealing villain.â€ Isolated from the fun, he is determined to destroy it. Relieving tensions are the hilarious constable and his watch and, in the end, it is bumbling Constable Dogberry who saves the day…
