One of the most popular Shakespeare's comedies, Much Ado About Nothing, is a comedy of much wit and humour. The central characters of Don Pedro, Benedick and Beatrice, Leonato and Hero often have the best intentions with others - to help them fall in love and be happy, however, these attemps often end up a failure, or even more, as a source of confusion and deception.
The play has been very popular since its first publication and has been staged dozens of times. The likes of John Gielgud, Derek Jacobi, Mark Rylance (who has both acted and directed the play), Tamsin Greig and Zoë Wanamaker have appered in the leading roles. Now you will have a chance to see by yourself why this play is indeed one of the finest Shakespearian commedies.
