The Marlowe Society’s Annual Shakespeare production featuring a cast and crew from BME backgrounds is proud to present Much Ado About Nothing, a play about two vastly different couples who fall into a world of love and deceit, pride and dishonour, tension and resolve, with a cacophony of wildly funny interferences.

A romantic comedy at its core, the play follows the relationships between doting lovers Hero and Claudio, ‘chalk and cheese’ Benedick and Beatrice and feuding brothers Don Pedro and Don John and how they render the chaos that ensues around them. Lies, deceit and cunning are no match for the joyous music, dance and celebration that supplement the play at every turn, even in its darkest moments.

This performance is recommended for audiences aged 8+

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
