Much Ado About Nothing
by William Shakespeare
adapted by Heather Simpkin
produced by Bear in the Air Productions
“I’d rather hear my dog bark at a crow than a man swear he loves me.”
Come and enjoy Shakespeare’s most popular bantering couple, Beatrice and Benedick. Hilariously awkward in each other’s presence, their witty repartee leads to love – with a little help from their friends.
Throw in a conniving baddie out to create mischief, a young and naïve but dashing couple, and the out-of-their-depth local police force and you have the recipe for a fun theatrical experience.
Much Ado About Nothing is produced by Bear in the Air Productions, an award-nominated theatre company whose troupe of travelling players bring one of Shakespeare’s most loved comedies to glorious, vivid life.
