Bell Shakespeare Production: Much Ado About Nothing
Captioned Performance: Saturday, 28 May at 2pm at The Playhouse, Canberra.
A trip down the aisle is never a straight one.
Claudio and Hero are deeply in love. Beatrice and Benedick are deeply in denial. All is well. Then Claudio humiliates Hero. Hero has a fainting attack and pretends to die. And Beatrice and Benedick join forces with a vengeance. And that’s just up to the interval. If it sounds complicated, well, that’s love for you – a trip down the aisle is never a straight one.
John Bell directs this exuberant comedy with a lightness of touch and a fantastic cast including Blazey Best, Toby Schmitz, Max Gillies and Tony Llewellyn-Jones.
When you delve into other people’s relationships you soon learn the real cost of commitment – what we will do and what we won’t do for that capricious and often elusive state of love.
Duration: Approximately 150 minutes, inclusive of interval
