All over the world, the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death is being marked by celebrations of his life and performances of his plays. Happily, the Theatre Royal will also be hosting a Special Theatrical Event to tie in with this anniversary in 2016.

Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s liveliest comedies, though it also has a very dark sub-plot. It will be understood and enjoyed by anyone who has ever been in love or who has hoped to fall in love – in other words, most of the human race! It’s a laugh-filled, action-packed emotional rollercoaster that remains as relevant today as when it was first written four centuries ago.
