“Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps.” 
If you think Romeo and Juliet were “a pair of star-cross’d lovers,” wait until you meet Beatrice and Benedick! These viper-tongued nemeses are made for one another. And everyone sees it…except them. It will take a village of meddlers, gossips, and fools to nudge these two toward the altar. Enjoy Shakespeare’s smart and sassy romantic comedy under the stars at the PFI Historic Park in Ellicott City. Bring a picnic!
