Much ado about something?


We've got so used to wanting to do something this summer, but on this occasion you might just want to think about making much ado about nothing! War heroes Don Pedro and his soldier-boys turn up at Governor Leonato's house hoping for a well deserved rest … but when has that ever worked out? Claudio loves Hero; Benedick despises Beatrice (and the feeling is mutual she will assure you). Pedro's pals are either obstinately love struck or in denial of their emotions allowing the Don's half-sister Donna Juana and the beastly Borachio to hatch a plot to tear their worlds apart. But never fear! The local neighbourhood watch are on call to intercede swiftly and bring them to justice ... right?!


The beautiful Bell House beckons you to do nothing but be bewitched by a sharp fast-paced rom-com based on trickery and mistaken identity. In a generation of fake news, The Dulwich Players bring clarity, modernizing a scorching Shakespearean sizzler with a citrus-fresh twist.
