Much Ado About Nothing

Wednesday 19th to Saturday 22nd November 2014

Hertford Theatre, Hertford


This comedy about romance, rumours and trickery has a large cast and is an opportunity to re-acquaint yourself with, or dip your toe into Shakespeare. It's funnier and easier than you think and this is one of the bard's most well loved comedies.
