About the event

Much Ado About Nothing is a saucy and razor-sharp battle of wits between the bickering Beatrice and Benedick who wield words as weapons, their banter betraying their love for each other.

Claudio however is quickly consumed by envy and his idyllic world threatens to come tumbling down as he humiliates Hero. Beatrice and Benedick must join forces to defend true love – even if they can’t recognise it in themselves. But will truth and honesty win the day, and does love really conquer all?

Directed by Bell Shakespeare’s Associate Director, James Evans (Julius Caesar) and starring Zindzi Okenyo (Antony and Cleopatra, MTC’s An Ideal Husband) as Beatrice, this Much Ado About Nothing will be a powerful exploration of the struggle for identity and self-knowledge in a male-dominated world.

Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s contemporary comedies where romance is thwarted by dastardly plots, misinformation, false accusations, broken promises, and bumbling cops. Or is it?

"4.5 stars. A truly fun production, and a uniquely Australian interpretation with something profound to say."


"A masterful display of Shakespeare's rhetorical wit and dramatic wile"


"Just as fun, silly and filled with snarky jokes, slapstick comedy and rom-com good times as one would want."


"Packed with enough farcical slapstick and witty banter to fill an entire Richard Curtis movie."


"Speak low if you speak love"
