'We go to Shakespeare to find out about ourselves' Jeanette Winterson
Beatrice and Benedick both claim they are determined never to marry. But when their friends trick them into believing that each harbours secret feelings for the other, the pair begin to question whether their witty banter and verbal sparring conceal something deeper. Schemes abound, dangerous misunderstandings proliferate and
matches are eventually made in this dazzling, dark-edged comedy of mature love and second chances.
