Much Ado About Nothing
by William Shakespeare
directed by Simon Godwin
Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd) and John Heffernan (Dracula) lead the cast in Shakespeare’s romcom of sun, sea and mistaken identity.
The legendary family-run Hotel Messina on the Italian Riveria has been visited by artists, celebrities and royalty. But when the owner’s daughter weds a dashing young soldier, not all guests are in the mood for love.
A string of scandalous deceptions soon surround not only the young couple, but also the adamantly single Beatrice and Benedick.
Following the award-winning success of National Theatre Live’s Romeo & Juliet, Twelfth Night and Antony and Cleopatra, director Simon Godwin returns with this irresistible comedy.
What are National Theatre Live Screenings?
National Theatre Live brings the best of British theatre to screens worldwide.
Using state-of-the-art film techniques tailored to each play, each performance is presented in all its glory. From close-ups that capture every flare of emotion to sweeping shots of the stage. Each recording is filmed in front of a live audience at the National Theatre in London. The position of the cameras in the theatre is matched to the play to ensure that the audience in front of the screen always has the best seat in the house.
This means that we get film recordings of world-class plays sent to Liechtenstein, which are then shown on the big screen at our venue. A perfect synergy of theatre and cinema. This is theatre for everyone.
