Shakespeare’s battle of the sexes is reignited this Summer with a riotous new production of Much Ado About Nothing in the Globe Theatre. 

In the aftermath of a fierce conflict, soldier Claudio finds himself on the frontline of a different fight: for the love of Hero. His friend Benedick, on the other hand, is willing to do everything he can to evade affection and meets his match in Beatrice. 

Eight years after the seminal production of Titus Andronicus, ‘ingenious’ ★★★★ (The Guardian), Lucy Bailey returns to the Globe to direct our 2022 Globe Ensemble in Shakespeare’s energetic tale of jealousy, self-discovery and love.

‘I had rather hear my dog bark at a crow, than a man swear he loves me.’ 
Act I, scene 1

I loved this production of Much Ado About Nothing - great acting, engaging, funny, effective use of space and so much more. The actors showed great respect for the poetry rather than gabbling it. My enjoyment was slightly spoiled in the second half when some youngsters chatted throughout - despite constant reminders to be quiet.

Yesterday (Saturday) went to see afternoon production of Much Ado with a friend. Brilliant production as usual from the Globe. Light handed with many excellent 'moments' brilliant dancing and a few surprises. May go again later in the season in the evening. The only problem was 2 members of the audience on the far left father and daughter who talked throughout the performance had their phones out and were a nuisance to many other theatre goers they should have been asked to leave. Very poor audience management. Annie

I have questions are for the director. what did setting this play in postwar Italy reveal about the text? Why was Beatrice persuing a physical version of 'merriment' as main character trait? Did you expect babbling courtyard fountain to reduce audibility of actors? What happens when talented actors perform skillful dance? without joy? I enjoyed the restsint and timing of Benedict, the costumes were appealing, and I loved the accordion players who untimateky bore witness to a frenetic but joyless performance (matinee may 13). Sometimes Globe productions are both Show And Tell of Shakespeare. They do not trust the audience. This was one such.
