Much Ado About Nothing

Thu 29 July 7pm            Amphitheatre


Much Ado About Nothing

by William Shakespeare

Claudio loves Hero, and Benedick hates Beatrice. This is just as well, because Hero loves Claudio and Beatrice hates Benedick. Everyone laughs when Don Pedro plays a trick on Benedick and Beatrice, letting each think that they are secretly loved by the other. But it is no laughing matter when Don John plays a trick on Claudio and Hero, deceiving Claudio into thinking that Hero is not faithful to him.

Murderous rage is unleashed, and death can be the only solution... Or can it? Perhaps one last trick may resurrect the innocent dead, restore broken relationships - and even create an unlikely union of Benedick and Beatrice!

In their 29th open-air touring season, and renowned all over the world for their clarity, quality and ingenuity, Illyria stick to their home-turf: Shakespearean comedy.

Tickets: £16 (discounts: £12). Children: £10, Family of four: £38

This event is initially being sold as a socially distanced event in the open air amphitheatre to follow government restrictions. If the restrictions are lifted then it will be performed as usual in the amphitheatre.
