THE PLAY - MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING

AT THE ELIZABETHAN PLAYHOUSE

Performed by Illyria as part of Shakespeare's Weekend
3.00pm, Saturday 29th August 2020

Claudio loves Hero, and Benedick hates Beatrice. This is just as well, because Hero loves Claudia 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!

Now in it's 29th year, Illyria has delighted audiences the length and breadth of the UK, and in the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France and the United States and Canada performing some of the most well-loved productions on offer.

The company has won 4 international "Best Performance" awards and attracted numerous '5-star" and 'Critics' Choice" reviews for the lively clarity of its approach to Shakespeare's plays and other performances.
