Much Ado About Nothing

In honour of the 400th anniversary of the Bard's death, Romford Summer Theatre return this summer with their highly anticipated open-air production of "Much Ado About Nothing".

  • 8PM, 16 / 17/ 18  & 23 / 24 / 25 JUNE 2016
  • ALSO 3PM, SUNDAY 19  JUNE 2016

The play tells the story of two pairs of lovers; Hero and Claudio, eager and impatient; Beatrice and Benedick, fighting against their mutual attraction - much to the amusement of their family and friends.

Add to the mix, Don John, who will do anything to upset the intended nuptials of Claudio and Hero to spite his brother and the stage is set for one of Shakespeare's finest comedies.

It has been decided to place the action during the second Boer War, where the red-coated uniforms of the soldiers and the elegant gowns of the late Victorian / early Edwardian era will be perfectly highlighted against the atmospheric background of The Rockery in Raphaels Park.

Generally considered one of Shakespeare's best comedies, the play combines elements of robust hilarity with more serious meditations on honour, shame and court politics.
