Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps
Shakespeare’s much-loved comedy meets reality TV romance in a raucous and lyrical adaptation by poet and playwright Debris Stevenson (Poet in da Corner, Royal Court) at the iconic Duke of York’s Theatre in London’s West End. Josie Daxter (NYT alumna), who has worked extensively with The PappyShow and Complicite, playfully directs this modern-day love story as we go behind the cameras into a loved-up world of gossip, matchmaking and manipulation. The crossover we didn’t know we all needed, The National Youth Theatre’s Much Ado About Nothing blends all the gossip-fuelled drama of your favourite reality TV series with that of Shakespeare’s play. Watch as the love lives of four people cause a stir the way you’d expect on reality TV, as rumours circulate and eyes are turned. You’ll be surprised at the parallels! Don’t miss some of Britain’s best young talent taking over the West End on this 10th anniversary NYT REP Company production.
