Much Ado About Nothing
Shakespeare's Globe Summer 2020 Season
About Much Ado About Nothing
The war is over. And there’s a new life waiting. Champions of the battlefield are reunited with those they left at home. For Claudio there is Hero and they can’t take their eyes off each other. Then there’s Benedick and Beatrice who can’t stand to be in the same room together.
The possibilities of what the future could hold now seem endless, and hopeful and bright. What could it take for the new world of peace to be threatened?
This heartfelt and vibrant show asks how you heal after trauma, how to give yourself over to the vulnerabilities love, and how to have the courage to return to the thrill of the everyday.
When I said I would die a bachelor, I did not think I should live till I were married.
— Act II, scene 3
