Much Ado About Nothing

OPEN AIR THEATRE BY TOURING COMPANY ILLYRIA

Illyria return to Brantwood to perform the William Shakespeare classic Much Ado About Nothing.

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.

Running time: 2 hours 10 minutes (including a 20 minute interval)

Held in Brantwood’s lakeside meadow.  Please bring seating/rug. The Terrace Cafe will be open for snacks, hot drinks and alcoholic beverages.  Tickets: Ad £13.50, Child/Student £8.50 (4-18 years), under 4s free.
