Much Ado About Nothing to open at the New Vic

Northern Broadsides relocates Shakespeare’s classic at the end of World War II.

Much Ado About Nothing

Northern Broadsides will once again join forces with the award-winning New Vic Theatre in Spring 2019 to stage William Shakespeare’s glorious tale of antagonistic romance and chaotic comedy.

Featuring Reece Dinsdale in the role of Benedick and directed by Conrad Nelson, Much Ado About Nothing is told in true Northern Broadsides style and set at the end of World War II.

Six long years of war are finally over. Returning soldiers swap the booming battlefield for a landscape of love, masked balls and much-needed laughter. Two young dreamers — Hero and Claudio — fall head over heels, while two others — Benedick and Beatrice — resume their combative courtship.

As faithful friends plot romance and a vengeful brother plans destruction, can true love conquer all, or will whispers and rumour win out?

Much Ado About Nothing is at the New Vic, Newcastle-under-Lyme from 8th February – 2nd March before transferring to a national tour up to 25th May 2019. Tickets cost £15 – £24.50. Book online at newvictheatre.org.uk or call the Box Office on 01782 717 962.
