Much Ado About Nothing, by William Shakespeare
Tuesday 31st July - Saturday 4th August 2007 @ BLT
Wednesday 15th August - Saturday 18th August @ Lewes

Almost like a modern romantic comedy Much Ado About Nothing remains one of Shakespeare's most enduringly popular plays on stage. The five acts follow two pairs of lovers. Although the romance between Claudio and Hero ostensibly forms the main plot, the action is in fact mostly concerned with their counterparts, Benedick and Beatrice, whose love-hate relationship develops over the course of the play.
