Our Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank productions are created especially for young people and are an opportunity for all the family to attend a full-scale, fast-paced 90 minute performance in the Globe Theatre. Recommended for ages 10+

Packed with intrigue, double crossing and plenty of laughter, Much Ado About Nothing is the perfect introduction to Shakespeare for families. Following the turbulent romances between Hero and Claudio and Beatrice and Benedict, this exploration of what loyalty, chivalry, and true love really mean empowers young people to challenge their own perceptions of relationships.

Thanks to the support of Deutsche Bank tickets are available for these family performances at a subsidised rate.

‘These are important stories. They raise so many issues relevant to young people. Much Ado About Nothing invites us to challenge our preconceptions about image and the way we present ourselves to each other and society. Particularly relevant in the world today, that in our search for truth, common sense and instinct should prevail as we learn from mistakes and forgive.’
Michael Oakley, Director
