The 17th Annual Richmond Shakespeare Festival at Agecroft Hall
Directed by Foster Solomon
June 4 – 28, 2015
While young lovers Claudio and Hero have their upcoming wedding sabotaged by the schemes of a resentful soldier, sharp-tongued rivals Beatrice and Benedick fall prey to a prank by their friends; each becomes convinced the other is in love with them. Despite vicious volleys of cynical wit, they somehow manage to find true love in this, one of Shakespeare’s most delightful comedies.
