Much Ado About Nothing is the second film in a series of three from Globe on Screen. It will be followed by Dr Faustus. The Globe on Screen plays are filmed 2011 performances by Britain's foremost Shakespearian actors in the prestigious Globe in London.

Shakespeare’s wittiest of comedies, Much Ado About Nothing, pairs Olivier Award-winning actress Eve Best (The King’s Speech, Nurse Jackie, Shackleton, The Shadow Line) and Charles Edwards (An Ideal Husband, Downton Abbey), as the sparring lovers Beatrice and Benedick, and also features Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) as Leonato.

Directed by Jeremy Herrin, this fearless display of Shakespeare’s wit and wisdom, in which words become weapons, comes to sparkling life.

Eve Best and Charles Edwards star as the bantering Beatrice and Benedick, Shakespeare’s wittiest pair of lovers in a romantic comedy with a twist of suspense. Claudio loves Hero and Hero loves Claudio, and nothing seems capable of tearing them apart. Claudio’s friend Benedick loves Beatrice and Beatrice loves Benedick, but nothing seems capable of bringing them together.

Only the intrigues of a resentful prince force Benedick to prove his love for Beatrice... by killing his best friend.
