Much Ado About Nothing

"When I said I would die a bachelor, I did not think I should live till I were married."

In Shakespeare’s funniest comedy, battle-weary heroes return from the First World War with their thoughts turning to romance.

Benedick and Beatrice are “horribly in love”; they mock each other, feign disinterest and hurl insults until they are duped into declaring their true feelings.

Meanwhile, the dastardly Don John and his comical sidekicks plot to scupper any romances. Can the incompetent WPC Dogberry and the riotous ladies of ‘the watch’ foil their plans?

From the directors of 2013’s hit The Comedy of Errors, this hilarious production is full of witty love-duelling, comic villains and crazy chases.
