Much Ado About Nothing

Much Ado About Nothing

LOVE • WAR • LAUGHTER • MARRIAGE • MADNESS  

Soldiers return to Messina. Old flames flare up, fanned by cunning plans, midnight mischief and double deceptions. A mystery unpicked by a pair of bonkers watchmen. Love conquers all, whether they fight for or against it. 

Merely Theatre create energetic, crystal clear Shakespeare productions. Audiences follow the story better than ever and feel actively involved. Inventive and relentless, their work is informed by years of honing their principles in rep. The result is a dynamic cast of actors telling these amazing stories through sheer imaginary force. 

“What Shakespeare could and should be in this modern generation. Wonderful, high energy and delightfully easy to understand.” Everything Theatre (on Henry V) 

“A triumph of resourcefulness and invention…  this company has the theatre resonating irreverently with life.” Eastbourne Herald (on A Midsummer Night’s Dream) 

“Extremely moving…  often plunging the auditorium into pin-drop silences.” Mind The Blog (on Romeo & Juliet) 

“A theatre company that, literally, makes you want to come back again…” Frost Magazine (on Twelfth Night) 

Playing alongside Merely Theatre's Macbeth
