Act One

Much Ado About Nothing

YMCA Theatre, Roath • Wed 04 Feb 2015 19:30 - Sat 07 Feb 2015 22:00

Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps!

Harvest time on a post- World War II farming estate sees the return of Don Pedro and his regiment to pick up the remnants left by their requisition posting. Home to Leonato, his beautiful daughter Hero and feisty niece Beatrice, the estate becomes the setting for one of Shakespeare’s best-loved plays.

Bursting at the seams with comedy, romance and even conflict, this stylish adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing brings the genius of Shakespeare to the run-down glamour and precarious patriarchy of the late 1940s. Amid laughter and tears, we find hope and despair.

Much Ado About Nothing: a surprisingly modern tale of women fighting for their place in a man’s world.
