Fancy some top four hundred year-old banter? You’ll love this fresh take on Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy. In this adaptation reality TV romance meets The Bard courtesy of the poet and playwright Debris Stevenson, who’s Poet in da Corner at the Royal Court Theatre was a triumph. Josie Daxter, a National Youth Theatre alumna, has worked with The PappyShow and Complicité and now directs this love story with deft playfulness. Much Ado About Nothing is on stage at the West End’s Duke of York’s Theatre, and the story is just as funny as ever.
Leonato still lives with his daughter Hero and niece Beatrice. Don Pedro still turns up with his army of soldiers, including Claudio and Benedick. Claudio still falls in love with Hero. Don Pedro's half-brother Don John still tries to ruin the romance with gossip about the innocent Hero. But it all comes with a contemporary twist. Prepare to go behind the cameras into the loved-up, made-up telly world of gossip, matchmaking and manipulation. Some of the nation’s finest young talent have taken a classic romp and made it uniquely theirs for this 10th anniversary NYT REP Company production.
