BIV Plot Summary

As Don Pedro’s ragtag army returns victorious from battle, they pass through the town of Messina and visit with old friends. The spirit of love is in the air. Claudio, a celebrated young soldier, falls in love with the Governor’s daughter, Hero.

Meanwhile the townsfolk and the soldiers observe an almost-love story between Beatrice and Benedick, and conspire to bring these two together as well.

But Don Pedro’s villainous sister has hatched a plot to ruin Claudio and Hero’s wedding, and only a foolish constable and her bumbling assistants stand in the way of a tragedy befalling the characters in this comic tale.
