Much Ado About Nothing

Sparks fly in the Sicilian sunshine, but romance won’t win easily in this feisty

One of Shakespeare’s most popular plays, Much Ado About Nothing marries
witticism with sharp edge, introducing us to two of Shakespeare’s most
loquacious lovers: Benedick and Beatrice. A vivid and compelling tale, this
romantic comedy explores the nature of love, and asks whether romance alone
can truly overcome the obstacles of family, society, honour and deception.

Cambridge University’s Marlowe Society, one of the university’s most
acclaimed dramatic societies, returns to Cambridge Arts Theatre after its
string of successful productions in recent years including Romeo and Juliet
and Edward II. The Marlowe Society has launched the careers of some of
Britain’s greatest actors including Sir Ian McKellen, Tilda Swinton, Tom
Hiddleston and Derek Jacobi, and continues its tradition of showcasing the
best theatrical talent at the university.

Much Ado About Nothing is directed by Richard Beecham, whose credits
include productions across Britain and on tour, and productions at The Old
Vic, Theatre Royal Bath and the Watford Palace.
