Much Ado About Nothing – Sun and Moon Theatre
June 4 @ 12:30 pm
First performance 12.30pm, second performance 3.30pm.
A return of this fabulous theatre performing this much loved tale in the grounds for your entertainment.
‘I do love nothing in the world so well as you. Is not that strange?’
Sun & Moon Theatre are returning to Poltimore House and Grounds with a joyous, vibrant production of Much Ado About Nothing, one of Shakespeare’s best loved comedies.
It’s 1945, the war has ended, and Messina’s young men have returned ready for peace, celebration and … romance? Hero and Claudio are in love and engaged to be married, while Beatrice and Benedick are in a perpetual ‘merry war’, engaged in battles of wits and wills. But not everyone has come back unscathed, not all scars are visible, and the spread of misinformation has its consequences …
Suitable for all ages, enjoy a perfect summer’s night with Shakespeare’s boldest and most enduring romantic comedy showcasing a vivacious ensemble, razor-sharp wit, and live music.
