Benedick and friends

Much Ado About Nothing is a light-hearted romp set in Italy, telling the story of Benedict and Beatrice, Claudio and Hero and a raft of other characters. It was last performed by Shakespeare at Traquair 15 years ago, so we were delighted to be doing it again. Scott Noble, one of the original cast from 2003, directed the play.
