Award Winning Outdoor Theatre Company Illyria brings Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing to The Crichton Trust
Claudio loves Hero, and Benedick hates Beatrice. This is just as well, because Hero loves Claudio and Beatrice hates Benedick. Everyone laughs when Don Pedro plays a trick on Benedick and Beatrice, letting each think that they are secretly loved by the other. But it is no laughing matter when Don John plays a trick on Claudio and Hero, deceiving Claudio into thinking that Hero is not faithful to him.
Murderous rage is unleashed, and death can be the only solution… Or can it? Perhaps one last trick may resurrect the innocent dead, restore broken relationships – and even create an unlikely union of Benedick and Beatrice!
The show will take place beside the Crichton Memorial Church and will follow current government guidelines for your safety. Bring a picnic and a rug – and bring a brolly rain won’t stop play! Light snacks, hot and cold drinks are available to pre order at the Easterbrook Bistro
