Much Ado About Nothing
27 Sep 2019 - Capitol Theatre
Presented by Capitol Theatre Tamworth
Speak low if you speak love
Claudio and Hero are deeply in love. Beatrice and Benedick would rather swap sassy insults than sweet nothings.
Much Ado About Nothing is a saucy and razor-sharp battle of wits between the bickering Beatrice and Benedick, who wield words as weapons, their banter betraying their love for each other. Claudio however is quickly consumed by envy and his idyllic world threatens to come tumbling down as he humiliates Hero. Beatrice and Benedick must join forces to defend true love – even if they can’t recognise it in themselves.
But will truth and honesty win the day, and does love really conquer all?
“Bell Shakespeare – arguably the best Shakespearean theatre company” - Herald Sun
Directed by Bell Shakespeare’s Associate Director, James Evans and starring Zindzi Okenyo as Beatrice, this Much Ado About Nothing will be a powerful exploration of the struggle for identity and self-knowledge in a male-dominated world. The pursuit of love is framed in a social context that enhances the darker themes in this timeless comic gem.
Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s contemporary comedies where romance is thwarted by dastardly plots, misinformation, false accusations, broken promises, and bumbling cops. Or is it?
