Meddlesome friends and scheming nasties intervene in a story of love and loathing in 1930’s Italy.
Shakespeare’s timeless romantic comedy. Claudio and Hero fall head over heels in love, almost before they have spoken half a dozen words between them. Beatrice and Benedick hate each other of old. Left to themselves they would probably do unspeakable things to each other.
So….. wouldn’t it be satisfying if we planted ugly rumours about Hero, to ruin the wedding to Claudio? And wouldn’t it be hilarious if we tricked Beatrice and Benedick into believing that each actually loved the other?
But don’t worry! Thanks to Constable Dogberry and his rustic Neighbourhood Watch team the baddies are put to flight and everything ends happily ever after.

Note – the Gertrude Jekyll garden also will be open for viewing but no picnics are allowed in that area.
