A Sheffield Theatres and Ramps on the Moon Production Much Ado About Nothing By William Shakespeare Adapted and directed by Robert Hastie

‘I do love nothing in the world so well as you. Is not that strange?’

Besotted young couple Claudio and Hero have fallen fast and are quickly engaged. Not everyone finds romance so straightforward – Benedick balks at the very thought of it and Beatrice agrees with him, on that if nothing else. But somewhere in this world, there’s someone for everyone, even if they’re right under your nose.

A beloved comedy by William Shakespeare, Much Ado about Nothing is a story as endearing as it is funny, with quick-witted rivals and sweetheart dilemmas, and this contemporary adaptation directed by Robert Hastie, with an impressive cast of 18, promises to be just the feel-good treat we all need.

The show comes to Ipswich from the world-famous Sheffield Theatres and is made in association with Ramps on the Moon, the pioneering initiative committed to putting deaf and disabled artists and audiences at the centre of their work. Every performance features the use of integrated creative sign language, audio description and captioning.

This production explores themes including violence, emotional abuse, alcohol abuse, death, sexism and misogyny. These themes are not performed on the stage, but are within the writing and script.
