The summer of 2011 saw David Tennant and Catherine Tate appear together on stage for the first time in a brand
new production of William Shakespeare’s timeless comedy Much Ado About Nothing. Two young lovers Claudio and Hero are
to be married imminently but the devious scheming of a resentful Prince looks set to thwart the nuptials. Meanwhile, marriage
seems inconceivable for reluctant lovers Beatrice and Benedick whose endless witty sparring threatens to keep them apart forever.
Directed by Josie Rourke, Artistic Director of the Bush Theatre, Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s great
plays and reminds us all of the failings and triumphs of the human condition in our never ending search for perfect love.
