Globe to Globe: Much Ado About Nothing in French (France)

Much Ado, more than any other Shakespeare except maybe Hamlet and Twelfth Night, is about sex and death. (The three were written within three years of each other, 1598-1601, with Othello following close behind around 1602; clearly it was on his mind.) Compagnie Hypermobile's Beatrice and Benedick obviously get on well with each other. Their love isn't so much a revelation of feeling as an agreement to risk the literally deadly dangerous world of courtship and marriage together.
