NTT puts a spin on this classic romantic comedy to draw out all the wit and physical humour Shakespeare intended. It's the tale of love-me/hate-me duo Benedick and Beatrice, who hide their deeper feelings for each other behind clashes of wit, prompting their friends to take matters into their own hands and play match-maker for the unsuspecting larrikins. Meanwhile, when Claudio falls for beautiful Hero, their path to true love is challenged by jealousy and betrayal, and the keystone cops who should be solving the mess are more interested in basking in the limelight. Much Ado About Nothing combines steampunk with cyber-deception, and also accents the impact of the use – and misuse – of social media on contemporary life.
