Messina 1943. War is raging... The Italian Resistance defend their lands... and their hearts. The OSC makes a welcome return to Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, which we last produced back in 2002, and is a natural successor to last year’s wondrous Love’s Labour’s Lost (Critics Choice, The Telegraph). Will Beatrice and Benedick ever fall in love? Will Claudio and Hero ever marry? Resisting love though is only part of their troubles; Don John and his gang of early Mafiosi, driven by greed and jealousy, seek to undermine the sanctity of blood and the bonds of family. Meanwhile, the well meaning antics of the Watch cause an altogether more comic misrule… We welcome back a number of past OSC actors, who join the third collaboration between director Nicholas Green and composer Nicholas Lloyd Webber following the successes of last year and 2014’s Twelfth Night. Resident costume designer Adrian Lillie explores the fading romantic glamour of a world on the brink of change… Running every day until the 19th August (Excluding Sundays)
