Much Ado About Nothing – Free tickets for opening night tonight!

By 19 May 2011 3

Experience Shakespeare’s most loved romantic comedy. With its unique charm and quick wit, Bell Shakespeare’s production of Much Ado About Nothing takes place in Sicily in the 1950’s against a backdrop of iron rules of behavior, family pride, vendettas and the notion of male honour.

Claudio and Hero are deeply in love. Beatrice and Benedick are deeply in denial. All is well. Then Claudio humiliates Hero. Hero has a fainting attack and pretends to die. And Beatrice and Benedick join forces with a vengeance. And that’s just up to the interval.

If it sounds complicated, well, that’s love for you – a trip down the aisle is never a straight one. When you delve into other people’s relationships you soon learn the real cost of commitment – what we will do and what we won’t do for that capricious and often elusive state of love.

John Bell directs this exuberant comedy with a lightness of touch and a fantastic cast including Blazey Best, Toby Schmitz, Max Gillies and Tony Llewellyn-Jones.

RiotACT has 5 x double passed to give away to Bell Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing preview at the Canberra Theatre Centre tonight. To win simply email tim@the-riotact.com before 5.30pm
