Much Ado About Nothing
Author(s): William Shakespeare
Company: Royal Shakespeare Company
In a futuristic world, two very different couples fall in love—but who is really pulling the strings? With dastardly plots, slapstick and some of Shakespeare’s wittiest dialogue in this story of matchmaking and manipulation.
Director Roy Alexander Weise (joint Artistic Director of the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester) makes his RSC debut. Set designed by the award-winning Jemima Robinson, the production features costume designs by Melissa Simon-Hartman, who has designed for Beyoncé and Notting Hill Carnival, and an original score by Nigerian-born British guitarist and MOBO award-nominated musician Femi Temowo whose past collaborators include Amy Winehouse and The Roots.
