Theatr Clwyd, MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING 9 June – 2 July 2016


‘I do love nothing in the world so well as you… Is not that strange?’

Artistic Director Tamara Harvey has chosen William Shakespeare’s joyous romantic comedy Much Ado About Nothing as her directing debut for Theatr Clwyd.

Nothing can keep young lovers Claudio and Hero apart… Until the underhand cunning of the villainous Don John threatens their marriage.
Benedick and Beatrice are embroiled in an altogether more mischievous battle of wits… Surely nothing can bring the sparring pair together?

In this, Shakespeare’s 400th anniversary year, join us for a contemporary reimaging of his fast-paced, razor-sharp romance, never before produced at Theatr Clwyd. Delightful and uplifting, Much Ado about Nothing offers sparkling summer entertainment.

By: William Shakespeare
