Castle Theatre Presents Much Ado About Nothing

Monday 18th July 2016

Touring from the University of Durham, Castle Theatre Company presents one of Shakespeare’s greatest, timeless comedies - Much Ado About Nothing.

Centred on two pairs of feuding lovers, the play explores gossip, deception and the never ending search for love.

After declaring their love for each other, Hero and Claudio pass the time by attempting to convince the stubborn Beatrice and outspoken Benedick to fall for each other. However, after the villainous Don John’s deception surrounding Hero’s fidelity, Beatrice and Benedict are forced to reconcile their love on their own.

In the end, hilarity ensues, lies are exposed along with unfounded accusations and the whole farce turns out to be ‘much ado about nothing!’

For over 30 years, Castle Theatre Company has been running their annual summer tour around the south of England.

Performing classic Shakespearean comedies in stunning stately homes and abbeys across the country, Castle Theatre Company promises an evening of light-hearted family entertainment.
