Much Ado About Nothing

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

Shakespeare has returned to Rougemont Gardens! Sun & Moon Theatre are touring the South West 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 … Suitable for all ages, enjoy a perfect summer’s afternoon or evening with Shakespeare’s boldest and most enduring romantic comedy showcasing a vivacious ensemble, razor-sharp wit, and live music. Sun & Moon Theatre are delighted to be part of Exeter Phoenix’s Theatre in the Park season and to be bringing open-air Shakespeare back to Rougemont Gardens. They specialise in Shakespeare and are committed to producing accessible, relevant, and entertaining productions of Shakespeare’s plays.
