Much Ado About Nothing
Don Pedro proposes to disguise himself as Claudio and do the wooing for him at a masked ball. Hearing of his intent, Don John resolves to thwart him. After a variety of confusions, the wedding is publicly agreed, while Claudio, Hero, Don Pedro and Leonato resolve to trick Benedick and Beatrice into falling in love. The night before the wedding — interspersed with comic scenes involving Dogberry, the inept Constable of the Watch — Don John deceives Don Pedro and Claudio into believing they have seen Hero with another lover. The next day, the three of them accuse her of falsehood at the altar.
