November 1918. The Great War has finally come to end, and the men of the British military forces are returning to their homes.
Don Pedro and his comrades are coming at last to Messina (a little known village on the edge of the Cotswolds) where they are met by friends, old and new.
Join Rain or Shine Theatre Company this summer, as they visit one of Shakespeare’s best loved comedies. From the dastardly Don John, to the daft Sergeant Dogberry, ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ will bring you revellers, rascals and romance.
Featuring the very best of the Bard’s wit and wisdom, the fiery Beatrice gives Benedick, the bachelor, a battle of words to remember, and true love is at its sweetest as Claudio falls for his darling Hero.
So dig out your hampers and load up your picnic bags for Rain or Shine’s twentieth anniversary, as the people of Messina find love, scupper mischievous plots and celebrate new found peace across the world!
Sure to delight family audiences for age 6-96, this is an ideal choice for an outdoor theatrical event. Indoors if wet. Please bring your own seating and a picnic.
