Edward Bennett (seen recently with Nicole Kidman in Photograph 51) will return to the roles of Berowne and Benedick, while Lisa Dillon (The Roaring Girl, Taming Of The Shrew) will play Rosaline and Beatrice in this unique pairing of Shakespeare’s plays.

Love’s Labour’s Lost and Much Ado About Nothing (Or Love’s Labour’s Won) run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from 9 December to 18 March 2017. You can buy tickets through Official London Theatre.
