Jenny Oldfield creates a hilarious narrative retelling of Shakespeare's comedy, Much Ado About Nothing. When AC Messina's star striker Claudio falls for the team manager's daughter, Hero, he sets in motion an escalating web of deceit. Fuelled by a ...
combination of lies and genuine misunderstandings, Claudio is fooled into believing that Hero is having an affair, and rejects her on their wedding day; whilst star defender Benedick is tricked into falling in love with his worst enemy, Hero's cousin Beatrice. With a delightful cast of reporters, footballers, WAGs and revenge-obsessed scoundrels, will the truth ever be unravelled? But more to the point, will it result in any celebrity weddings? The Shakespeare Today series captures the magic of Shakespeare's original play and sets it in an accessible and contemporary style.
