Much Ado About Nothing RSC

As the RSC presents an array of shows at the Barbican-theatre.aspx">Barbican Theatre in 2016, from Cymbeline to The Alchemist, the Theatre Royal Haymarket in the West End also gets a look-in with Much Ado About Nothing. Presented alongside Love’s Labour’s Lost, the show is directed by Christopher Luscombe and features Edward Bennett in the role of Benedick.

Much Ado About Nothing has many similarities with Love’s Labour’s Lost (so much so that many theorise the former originally went by the title of Love’s Labour’s Won) and as a result they have proven to be perfect partners for the stage. This was seen with the RSC’s staging of the show at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon in 2014 and with Luscombe and Bennett returning for this West End transfer, audiences will know that they are in safe hands.

After all, the production was acclaimed by critics when it was seen two years ago and audiences responded positively to the revamped version of Shakespeare’s story, which relocated the action to the autumn of 1918 just after the First World War. Whilst the setting has changed we still meet Benedick and Beatrice, who reignite their turbulent romance alongside new lovers Hero and Claudio.

As well as appearing in Much Ado About Nothing at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Edward Bennett has also appeared in a wealth of other productions around the capital during a successful career. Audiences saw him alongside Nicole Kidman in Photograph 51 at the Noël Coward Theatre in 2015 and alongside James Corden in One Man, Two Guvnors at the National Theatre in 2013. Meanwhile, he has also appeared on television and in shows like Hay Fever at the Chichester Festival Theatre.

But now he reignites audience’s passion for Much Ado About Nothing as the production is staged in a year that has provided a lot of attention for The Bard, whose death 400 years ago in 1616 has been marked with celebrations throughout 2016.

Much Ado About Nothing is staged with Love’s Labour’s Lost at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from Friday 9th December 2016.
