“Shakespeare's greatest romantic comedy”

Much Ado About Nothing

Friday 8 February–Saturday 2 March 2019

New Vic and Northern Broadsides co-production

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Conrad Nelson

War is over and returning soldiers swap the battlefield for a landscape of love, masked balls and merriment. Two young dreamers fall head over heels, while two others resume their combative courtship.

As faithful friends plot romance and a vengeful brother plans destruction, can true love conquer all, or will gossip and rumour win out?

Filled with passion, humour and joy, this New Vic and Northern Broadsides co-production of Shakespeare’s glorious romantic comedy is sure to capture your heart this spring!
