Join the Lord Chamberlain's Men on their 12th anniversary production this summer for Shakespeare's battle of the sexes comedy.

Triumphant in battle, Don Pedro and his men return to Messina. The Governor, Leonato, toasts their success by throwing a masquerade ball where well-intentioned plots and evil schemes abound as enemies deceive lovers and friends trick friends in this lively summer comedy.

Bring a chair and a picnic and enjoy watching this funny and fast-paced production.
