THE curtain comes down on The Green Square Theatre’s Inside Out season in Welwyn Garden City next month with a classic comedy by William Shakespeare.

After the success of their Romeo & Juliet last year, and direct from the RSC Fringe Festival, Shooting Stars Theatre Company returns to the outside area at Campus West in WGC, with Much Ado About Nothing from Friday, August 17 to Sunday, August 19.

Few characters in Shakespeare are as loved as his bantering couple Beatrice and Benedick.

Their sunny repartee and creative sniping wins over many an audience and now, in a new outdoor production of Much Ado About Nothing, they prove it once again.

Claudio loves Hero and Hero loves Claudio and nothing seems capable of tearing them apart. Claudio’s friend Benedick loves Beatrice and Beatrice loves Benedick, but because neither will admit it, nothing seems capable of bringing them together.

Only the intrigues of a resentful prince force Benedick to prove his love for Beatrice – by killing his best friend.

Performed in a modern context that’s accessible to everyone, tickets for Much Ado About Nothing are £12, £10 concessions.
