Josie Rourke's award-winning production enjoyed a record-breaking run in the West End earlier this year at the Wyndham’s Theatre. Presented in the West End by Sonia Friedman Productions, designs were by Rob Jones with lighting by Peter Mumford, music by Michael Bruce and sound by Emma Laxton.

The cast comprised David Tennant (Benedick) and Catherine Tate (Beatrice), Tom Bateman (Claudio), Alex Beckett (Borachio), Joshua Berg (Titus), Jonathan Coy (Leonato), Anna Farnworth (Innogen), Mike Grady (Verges), Clive Hayward (Hugh Oatcake/Friar Francis), Derek Howard (Angelo), Kathryn Hunt (Ursula), Adam James (Don Pedro), Lee Knight (Conrade), Elliot Levey (Don John), Nicholas Lumley (George Seacole), Sarah MacRae (Hero), John Ramm (Dogberry), Enzo Squillino Jnr (Balthasar/Sexton), Leo Staar (Messenger), Natalie Thomas (Margaret) and Hannah Warren-Green (Maria).

"Two young lovers, Claudio and Hero, are to be married imminently but the devious scheming of a resentful Prince looks set to thwart the nuptials," according to press notes. "Meanwhile, marriage seems inconceivable for reluctant lovers Beatrice (Catherine Tate) and Benedick (David Tennant) whose endless witty sparring threatens to keep them apart forever."
