Much Ado About Nothing
29th June – 19th August in The Gardens of Wadham College, Oxford
The Oxford Shakespeare Co, acclaimed specialists in open-air and site specific theatre, present in the beautiful surroundings of the Gardens of Wadham College Oxford: William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing
Director Nicholas Green. Original Composition by Nicholas Llyod Webber.
RESISTENZA! Messina, 1943. War is raging…the Italian Resistance defend their lands…and their hearts.
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…
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).
The OSC have long been regarded as a cultural highlight of the Oxford summer, performing to thousands of returning local residents and delighting a broad audience of national and international visitors of all ages.
