The Pantaloons present: Much Ado About Nothing
There’s plenty to shout about in The Pantaloons’ take on Shakespeare’s timeless summer comedy of masks, music and mistaken identities!
The boys are back from war and it’s time for celebration, but devious Don John plans to spoil everyone’s fun with his perilous plots. Will young lovers Claudio and Hero fall foul of the crafty criminal? Will bickering Benedick and Beatrice ever admit that they actually like each other? Find out in this fast-paced, physical and funny new production!
We couldn’t think of a better play to enjoy on a balmy summer evening. This is an open air production, so bring a blanket and camping chair, and settle in with a drink or picnic as the the sun sets over stunning cityscape views.
The Coffee Shop inside our Visitor Centre will be serving beverages until 7pm, and snacks including nachos, hotdogs and popcorn will be available for the duration of the event from the ice cream truck on the Middle Bailey.
The Pantaloons are a vibrant and anarchic theatre company whose style draws from a wide variety of popular theatre traditions from commedia dell’arte and clowning to stand-up comedy and silent movies. They are a company dedicated to making theatre which is accessible yet intelligent, taking inspiration from an eclectic mix of popular forms and re-inventing these to produce imaginative and innovative work.
