Much Ado About Nothing

The critically acclaimed Watermill Ensemble sashay into the Golden Age of Hollywood with a glamourous new take on Shakespeare’s classic comedy.

Set against the backdrop of a bustling film set, passions run high as the drama continues even when the cameras stop rolling. Bickering on-screen lovers Benedick and Beatrice bring mischief and mayhem to the set, while the young lovers, rising star Claudio and, the daughter of the studio boss, Hero are threatened by an elaborate plot of deception.

Lose yourself in the music and film of this golden era with a 1940s-inspired soundscape, played live by an ensemble cast of actor-musicians.
