By AC Productions
Shakespeare’s classic comedy, transposed to 1960’s Italy where wit is as sharp as the fashion.
Cupid has his work cut out for him as the reluctant lovers, Beatrice and Benedict, exchange a war of words. This battle of the sexes comedy contains live music, dancing, stolen identities, love at first sight, duplicitous friends, marriage interrupted, feigned deaths and plenty of fools. But, when all’s said and done it’s Much Ado About Nothing!
In the Bard’s tale of barbed words and sparkling wit  the path of true love certainly doesn’t run smoothly.
“Sometimes even true love needs a nudge!”
“AC Productions’ setting of the comedy in the light bright La Dolce Vita of Italien 1960s provides the right carefree environment that quickly becomes whipped into a ferment of outraged honour and mistaken intent” Irish Independent
