Synopsis


Mexico, 1914.

Claudio and Benedick return home from the first wave of the revolution. Claudio has been pining for his love, Hero. Benedick loves her cousin Beatrice and Beatrice Benedick; but because neither will admit it, nothing seems likely to bring them together. Only the intrigues of a revolutionary with a dark heart, force Benedick to prove his love for Beatrice – by vowing to kill his best friend, Claudio.

Background


Shakespeare’s classic tale of antagonistic romance and madcap humour explodes on to the Globe stage with a fusion of Latin music, desert flowers and revolutionary politics in this bold new production.

Matthew Dunster is Associate Director at Shakespeare’s Globe, where his previous productions include Imogen (2016), The Lightning Child (2013), Doctor Faustus (2011), Troilus and Cressida (2009) and The Frontline (2008 and 2009).

Please note: this production of Much Ado About Nothing is set during the armed struggles of the Mexican Revolution. As a result it will feature guns and gunfire at various moments throughout the performance.
