Much Ado About NothingThe Royal Shakespeare Company's reinterpretation of Shakespeare's romantic comedy Much Ado About Nothing transfers from their Stratford-on-Avon home to the Noel Coward Theatre in London this autumn. The setting for this production, which is "at its best when it makes inventive use of the Indian setting," (Michael Billington in The Guardian), is modern day Delhi. Drawing on parallels between Shakespeare's comedy and Bollywood romance, this colourful show stars Meera Syal - who is "sparky and engaging" (Standard) - as Beatrice and Paul Bhattacharjee as the bachelor Benedick in a lively showdown between the sexes. Much Ado About Nothing is directed by Iqbal Khan whose recent credits include Broken Glass at the Tricycle Theatre and The Killing of Sister George at the Arts Theatre.

 

About Noel Coward Theatre

Built by the Wyndham family as a companion to the Wyndham's Theatre, the Noel Coward Theatre is a stately building. Originally named the 'New Theatre', it shook off its unimaginative and inaccurate name in on its 70th birthday and became the 'Albery'. More about Noel Coward Theatre
