WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
After civil war Messina seems to have returned to peace with few casualties and a courtship holds the promise of reconciling the battle of the sexes in a well matched wedding. But the reconciliation's have been too hurried and soldiers can't return to the civilian world overnight.
Set in 18th century Spain with its colour, passion and energy, Traffic of the Stage presents Judi Bowker (Clash of the Titans) and Harry Meacher (The Scarlet Pimpernel) as the Bard's sparring lovers, Beatrice and Benedick, in this cautionary tale of love and self-deception.
