“Friendship is constant in all other things, save in the office and affairs of love”

Claudio and Hero are in love and marriage is on the cards. However, there are those who are plotting to stop it. Beatrice and Benedick, meanwhile, can’t stand all that love stuff anyway.

Be prepared for lies, trickery, deception, misunderstanding, matchmaking, parental meddling and general chaos. All richly blended together with love, wit and humour.

Much Ado's mix of romance, borderline slapstick, verbal comedy, soaps and melodrama makes it a timeless piece of theatre that’s especially relevant to audiences new to Shakespeare.

Following their successful tour of Hamlet which was featured in the award winning documentary Growing Up Downs; Blue Apple returns with a new adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing.

Adapted specially for the company, Much Ado develops our reputation as a leader in theatre performance for actors with learning disabilities by tackling Shakespeare in unexpected, exciting and accessible new ways.

Working on professional mainstream stages, Blue Apple performs quality, powerful and thought-provoking theatre that attracts both mainstream and inclusive audiences.
