‘Thou and I are too wise to woo peaceably’
To celebrate the 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, Wolf-Sister Productions brings to The Rose Playhouse one of his best loved comedies, Much Ado About Nothing.
June 1945. The war in Europe is over. Benedick and his younger friend Claudio have returned, eager to lose themselves in partying the summer away. But a very different kind of battle is brewing, and this time their foes are Beatrice and Hero. When it comes to affairs of the heart, our two soldiers are clueless, and victory is no longer assured.
This production examines the fragility of love, whether it be young love or an old flame. Can Claudio find happiness when his world has been ripped apart by war? Will Benedick and Beatrice ever stop fighting? And what happens when you are forced to choose between love and friendship?
The battle of the sexes is fought with words, not bullets, but can be just as brutal.
