Eve Best and Charles Edwards star as the bantering Beatrice and Benedick, William Shakespeare's wittiest pair of lovers in Globe on Screen's live production of Much Ado About Nothing—a romantic comedy with a twist of suspense—filmed earlier in 2012. Claudio loves Hero and Hero loves Claudio, and nothing seems capable of tearing them apart. Claudio's friend Benedick loves Beatrice and Beatrice loves Benedick, but nothing seems capable of bringing them together. Only the intrigues of a resentful prince force Benedick to prove his love for Beatrice... by killing his best friend. Globe on Screen presents classic works in an imaginative, skillful and accessible style that honors Shakespeare and his fellow playwrights' language and intentions, in a reconstruction of the house that Shakespeare built, while projecting their work through a 21st-century lens.
