Much Ado About Nothing

June 26 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

£6 – £32

‘I do love nothing in the world so well as you. Is not that strange?’

Sun & Moon Theatre returns to Penlee Park Open Air Theatre this summer with a joyous, vibrant production of Much Ado About Nothing, one of Shakespeare’s best loved comedies.

It’s 1945, the war has ended, and Messina’s young men have returned ready for peace, celebration and … romance? Hero and Claudio are in love and engaged to be married, while Beatrice and Benedick are in a perpetual ‘merry war’, engaged in battles of wits and wills. But not everyone has come back unscathed, not all scars are visible, and the spread of misinformation has its consequences …

Join us for this hilarious, bold, and bittersweet show featuring love, deception, confrontations, and second chances. Suitable for all ages, enjoy a perfect summer’s night with Shakespeare’s most enduring romantic comedy showcasing a vivacious ensemble, razor-sharp wit, and live music.

This production of Much Ado About Nothing was granted the Cymbeline Award when originally staged and Sun & Moon Theatre are delighted to be showcasing it on tour in 2022!

★★★★★ ‘Creative genius … a magical production. I can’t wait to see what happens next!’

★★★★ ‘Shakespeare at its best. Catch this dynamic theatre company, whether you are a fan of Shakespeare or not … you soon will be!’

★★★★ ‘A summer’s delight … charming and funny’

‘This production succeeded in magnificent style. Boasting hilarity and heart in equal measure, Sun & Moon harnessed the comedy’s madcap energy while foregrounding the very human, very relatable relationships that make this play tick’
