Antic Disposition present Much Ado About Nothing
July 9 @ 7:30 pm
Following their sold-out performances of Henry V and Richard III in 2017, award-winning theatre company Antic Disposition return to Ely Cathedral with a new production of one of Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies.
Set in a sun-drenched French village celebrating the new peace of 1945, Antic Disposition’s Much Ado About Nothing introduces us to a cast of vibrant and eccentric characters, as the quiet village square turns battlefield for the ‘merry war’ between sparring partners Beatrice and Benedick.
Performed by a talented company of actors and musicians drawn from both sides of the Channel, Antic Disposition’s Much Ado About Nothing draws its inspiration from the beloved films of French comic genius Jacques Tati (Jour de fête; Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot), combining the verbal fireworks of Shakespeare’s wittiest play with hilarious physical comedy and a score of exuberant live music and songs.
