The magical outdoor Shakespeare festival returns with two of his most popular works: Much Ado About Nothing and Richard III.
Much Ado About Nothing (1st - 5th August)
"I do love nothing in the world so well as you. Is not that strange?"
When the soldiers return from the war, romance blooms... but so does jealousy and duplicity. One of the nation's favourite comedies, Much Ado redraws the lines between love and hate in chaotic, comic fashion.
Richard III (8th - 12th August)
"Since I cannot prove the lover... I am determined to prove a villain."
Jealous of his brother's new kingly power, Richard plots, seduces and murders his way to the throne. What follows is mischief, mayhem and pure malevolence. The funniest and darkest of Shakespeare's histories: the tale of Richard's villainy is never one to miss.
Two plays that mix comedy and tragedy, love and betrayal, and two productions filled with wit, creativity and verve. And all under the summer starlight.
