Much Ado About Nothing, The Everyman Theatre 12 & 13 Nov

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING


Presented by Rough Magic Theatre Company

One of Ireland’s leading theatre companies, Rough Magic presents Much Ado About Nothing, by William Shakespeare.

William Shakespeare’s festive comedy about deception and excess is given a vivid contemporary staging with a stellar cast.  A comedy of sparkling wit and linguistic exuberance that playfully undermines the seriousness of romance!

On the deck of a deluxe holiday home, a group of friends assemble for a week-long party full of cocktail-infused debauchery, pop music, and questionable gender politics. Shakespeare’s celebrated screwball comedy of disguised affection and misguided love charts the white-knuckle ride of two volatile courtships. Why do people who are meant for each other always have to make it impossible first?

“We don’t often get to see this ­particular Shakespeare play so it’s a pleasure to have it so well served in this boisterous and intelligent production by Rough Magic……A hugely enjoyable and timeless treat”  Irish Independent
