MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING AT PENFOLD THEATRE





Much Ado About Nothing at Penfold Theatre

In Much Ado About Nothing at Penfold Theatre, the soldiers return victorious from war, but the merry sparring – and sparks – between the stubborn bachelor Benedict and the self-assured Beatrice have just begun! Meanwhile, young Claudio and Hero are standing at the altar when schemes of the villainous Don John threaten to sour everyone’s happiness. Now, all hope for happy endings lies in the hands of the bumbling members of the Night’s Watch.

Shakespeare’s highly celebrated, romantic and razor-witted comedy gives us the battle of the sexes as a delicious war of words, striking hilarious chords and revealing timeless truths about love, change and acceptance.
