About the Show Less...

Marianne Elliot's Cuban-themed production of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing kicks off the RSC's winter season at the Novello. Read More >

A lively showdown between the sexes unfolds in Shakespeare’s farcical comedy. Beatrice, independent and forthright and Benedick, a self-confessed ‘woman-hater’, pass their time constantly goading and scorning each other. When they are thrown together to defend a friend’s and family’s honour, their true feelings begin to be revealed.

Mariann Elliot’s debut production for the RSC sets the action in 1950s Cuba. The cast is led by Tamsin Greig as Beatrice and Joseph Millson as Benedick.
