MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING

By William Shakespeare

 

On the deck of a deluxe mobile home a group of friends gather for a week-long party full of cocktail-infused debauchery, bad dancing and questionable gender politics.

As the celebrations continue, two couples emerge. Claudio and Hero fall deeply and madly in love, while Benedick and Beatrice resume their altogether more quarrelsome romance. Much Ado About Nothing charts the course of these two star-crossed courtships as malicious rumour and pointed lies threaten to tear them both apart.

After last year’s award-winning production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in the Castle Yard in Kilkenny, Rough Magic returns with a vivid contemporary staging of Shakespeare's celebrated screwball comedy. This festive production of deception and excess, sparkling wit and linguistic exuberance asks: can we ever truly know the people we love?
