Much Ado About Nothing

Friday, 12/16 to Sunday, 12/18

“★★★★★ A tremendous production.” — Broadway World

“Katherine Parkinson and John Heffernan are a blast in this luxuriously eccentric take on Shakespeare’s romcom.“ — Andrzej Lukowski, Time Out

Following his award-winning productions of Romeo & Juliet, Twelfth Night and Antony and Cleopatra, director Simon Godwin returns with this irresistible comedy.

The legendary family-run Hotel Messina on the Italian Riveria has been visited by artists, celebrities and royalty. But when the owner’s daughter weds a dashing young soldier, not all guests are in the mood for love.

A string of scandalous deceptions soon surround not only the young couple, but also the adamantly single Beatrice and Benedick.

This production includes a 15-minute intermission. The screening on Friday, 12/16 features English subtitles.
