Manawatū Summer Shakespeare presents Much Ado about Nothing
Directed by Rhian Firmin
Feb 22nd - March 2nd
(No shows Monday or Tuesday)

Celebrating 21 years of high-quality, outdoor theatre, by the community, for the community and presented for koha entry so audience can pay what they can, if they can to ensure the work is freely accessible across our community.

Much Ado about Nothing stars fiercely independent Beatrice, one of the Bard’s wittiest heroines. Her peaceful, single (by choice) life in idyllic Messina is turned upside down by the arrival of a troop of soldiers, including the one she loves to hate - brooding Benedick. This caustic, chaotic and charismatic comedy promises hilarity and many sharp one liners. Currently enjoying a contemporary resurgence with the new release of the film Anyone but You based on the play, Manawatū Summer Shakespeare show that once again they are hitting the zeitgeist and promise a sharp, colourful and thoroughly contemporary production. It’s set to be a vibrant, post-punk paradise - drawing inspiration from Barbie, Mad Max and preppy pool party aesthetics.
