National Theatre Live – Much Ado About Nothing

Much Ado About Nothing is Shakespeare’s well-loved romcom of sun, sea and mistaken identity, with a cast including Katherine Parkinson (Home, I’m Darling, The IT Crowd) and John Heffernan (Dracula, She Stoops to Conquer).

The legendary family-run Hotel Messina on the Italian Riveria has been visited by artists, celebrities and royalty. But when the owner’s daughter weds a dashing young soldier, not all guests are in the mood for love. A string of scandalous deceptions soon surrounds not only the young couple but also the adamantly single Beatrice and Benedick.

Following the award-winning success of National Theatre Live’s Romeo & Juliet, Twelfth Night and Antony and Cleopatra, Much Ado About Nothing is directed by Simon Godwin as an irresistible comedy, broadcast live from the National Theatre stage.

“Whatever Godwin and Fleischle’s real inspirations, the whole thing looks like a dream and the decision to amp up the various characters’ eccentricities is a smart one.” – Time Out

“This is Shakespeare in the swing age, its drama turned into stylish screwball comedy.” – Arifa Akbar, The Guardian

Written by William Shakespeare | Directed by Simon Godwin | Broadcast live from the National Theatre in London.
