Shakespeare's Globe

Much Ado About Nothing [2012]

Written by: William Shakespeare
Directed by: Clément Poirée
Translated by: Jude Lucas

Part of the 2012 Globe to Globe Festival.

Performed in French by Compagnie Hypermobile, from Paris, France.

In the Cartoucherie de Vincennes outside Paris, sits a bold and enterprising venue, the Theatre de la Tempete. Clément Poirée's Hypermobile company are one of the principal groups who give this theatre its impressive reputation. Poirée's new production, running at la Tempete in winter 2011, is a bittersweet take on Much Ado About Nothing, set amid the hypertensions of an Italian restaurant. 

Rent or Own this production on the Globe Player.
