Shakespeare’s Globe returns with a brand new production of ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ at The Connaught Theatre on Friday Monday May 30th and Saturday May 31st.
Claudio loves Hero and Hero Claudio and nothing seems capable of keeping them apart. Claudio’s friend Benedick loves Beatrice and Beatrice Benedick, but (because neither will admit it) nothing seems capable of bringing them together. Only the intrigues of a resentful prince force Benedick to prove his love for Beatrice – by killing his best friend.
Driven along by a romance all the more charming for being in denial, ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ is a miracle of comic and dramatic suspense and gives us, in the bantering Beatrice and Benedick, two of Shakespeare’s wittiest, most endearing pair of lovers.
Claudio plays Sam Phillips, Hero – Gemma Lawrence, Benedick – Simon Bubb and Beatrice – Emma Pallant.
Performed at the Globe and touring across the UK and Europe.
Performances: Evenings at 7.30 pm, matinee on Saturday at 2.00 pm.
Ticket prices: £18.50, concessions £1.00 discount and Friends of Worthing Theatres £16.50.
