About Much Ado About Nothing | Globe

Shakespeare’s battle of the sexes is reignited this Summer with a riotous new production of Much Ado About Nothing in the Globe Theatre.

In the aftermath of a fierce conflict, soldier Claudio finds himself on the frontline of a different fight: for the love of Hero. His friend Benedick, on the other hand, is willing to do everything he can to evade affection and meets his match in Beatrice.

Eight years after the seminal production of Titus Andronicus, ‘ingenious’ ★★★★ (The Guardian), Lucy Bailey returns to the Globe to direct our 2022 Globe Ensemble in Shakespeare’s energetic tale of jealousy, self-discovery and love.

‘I had rather hear my dog bark at a crow, than a man swear he loves me.’
Act I, scene 1
