Sun & Moon Theatre : 'Much Ado About Nothing'
"I do love nothing in the world so well as you. Is not that strange?"Join us for this hilarious, bold, and bittersweet show featuring love, deception, confrontations, and second chances.
Suitable for all ages, enjoy a perfect summer’s evening with Shakespeare’s most enduring romantic comedy showcasing a vivacious ensemble, razor-sharp wit, and live music. Sun & Moon Theatre are delighted to be showcasing it at St Austell Arts Centre!
Sun & Moon Theatre will be touring this summer with a joyous, vibrant production of Much Ado About Nothing, one of Shakespeare’s best loved comedies.
It's 1945, the war has ended, and Messina’s young men have returned ready for peace, celebration and … romance?
Hero and Claudio are in love and engaged to be married, while Beatrice and Benedick are in a perpetual ‘merry war’, engaged in battles of wits and wills. But not everyone has come back unscathed, not all scars are visible, and the spread of misinformation has its consequences ...
Reviews of past shows:
★★★★★ "Creative genius … a magical production. I can't wait to see what happens next!"
★★★★ "Shakespeare at its best. Catch this dynamic theatre company, whether you are a fan of Shakespeare or not … you soon will be!"
★★★★ " A summer’s delight … charming and funny."
★★★★ 'Such a talented cast’
"This production succeeded in magnificent style. Boasting hilarity and heart in equal measure, Sun & Moon harnessed the comedy’s madcap energy while foregrounding the very human, very relatable relationships that make this play tick."
