Much Ado About Nothing (London, The Watermill Theatre, 2024) | Playbill

Much Ado About Nothing


Set against the backdrop of a bustling film set, passions run high as the drama continues even when the cameras stop rolling. Backstage gossip, bickering on-screen lovers Benedick and Beatrice and an elaborate plot of deception bring mischief and mayhem to the set and the young lovers, the rising star Claudio and the daughter of the studio boss Hero.

Lose yourself in the music and film of this golden era with a 1940s-inspired soundscape, played live by an ensemble cast of actor-musicians.
