Much Ado About Nothing

Shakespeare’s battle of the sexes is reignited this Summer with a riotous new production of Much Ado About Nothing in the Globe Theatre. 

In the aftermath of a fierce conflict, soldier Claudio finds himself on the frontline of a different fight: for the love of Hero. His friend Benedick, on the other hand, is willing to do everything he can to evade affection and meets his match in Beatrice. 

Eight years after the seminal production of Titus Andronicus, ‘ingenious’ ★★★★ (The Guardian), Lucy Bailey returns to the Globe to direct our 2022 Globe Ensemble in Shakespeare’s energetic tale of jealousy, self-discovery and love.

‘I had rather hear my dog bark at a crow, than a man swear he loves me.’ 
Act I, scene 1

    Amazing version of my favourite Shakespeare Play, made more special by being at the Globe and the last show of the season! Glad the weather held out! Loved the change to Antonia and Leonarta, the loving witty bickering between Beatrice and Benedick (plus exceptionally timed physical comedy), Dogberry - who stole the show with his buffoonery - and the staging as a whole. Felt like we were part of the Summer Party! Great interaction with audience. A total joy. Thank you

    It was fabulously funny. Fantastic acting and interaction with the audience. We had the best time! I would see this again and again!

    What can I say except what fun, what an interesting way to portray this play, a production not to be missed. A production that keeps both young and old on their toes despite knowing the play well. Shakespere would have thoroughly approved of the up to date modern intepretation. The actors obviously enjoy delivering the play as much as we all enjoyed watching it. Thank you
