Coming to Hillsboro from Glasgow’s Bard in the Botanics, Gordon Barr’s take on one of the Bard’s most well-loved comedies turns central lovers Benedick and Beatrice into contemporary partners Benedick and Bertram, and streamlines the action in Messina; we take the concept one step further, exploring love and its many facets with a fluid approach to gender. While everyone plots to make Bertram and Benedick fall for each other, Don John, the misanthropic illegitimate sibling of the prince, contrives a much more malicious plan, sobering what otherwise might simply be a romp of banter and romance. Still, the lovers win out, Don John is exposed (through some hilarious and haphazard detective work), and everyone finds a way to live happily ever after, reminding us that love is love is love is love.
