Much Ado About Nothing
See the Globe Theatre ‘fill with joyous life’ (Time Out) for our ★★★★ ‘absurdly funny, smart and stylish’ (Evening Standard) production of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing.
April 1945, Northern Italy. Following years of war, Leonata and her daughters reopen their battle-scarred palazzo for a celebration to welcome the partisan soldiers back from recent hard-fought victories.
Young lovers Hero and Claudio and proud singletons Beatrice and Benedick have their limits tested like never before in a wild mix of games, pranks and mischievous plots.
After her seminal production of Titus Andronicus, ‘ingenious’ ★★★★ (The Guardian), Lucy Bailey returns to the Globe to direct our 2022 Globe Ensemble.
‘I had rather hear my dog bark at a crow, than a man swear he loves me.’
– Act I, scene 1
