Shakespeare’s sparkling comedy of misunderstandings, given a 1940s twist!
Beatrice and Benedick love to hate each other, but their friends suspect them of deeper feelings... War hero Claudio is madly in love with Beatrice’s pretty young cousin, but how well does he really know her?
Set at the height of the Battle of Britain, our affectionate homage to the servicewomen of World War Two is a playful response to the all-male productions of Shakespeare’s own time.
Join us and step back in time to a Palace transported back into the 1940s, complete with sandbags, Gin and It, and a Home Guard recruitment stall...
