About This Show

Shakespeare’s much loved comedy of new beginnings.

Escape to the Italian Riviera with a cast including Katherine Parkinson, (Home, I’m Darling) and John Heffernan (The Pursuit of Love).

Since the 1930’s, the legendary family-run Hotel Messina has been visited by artists, celebrities and royalty.

When the current owner’s daughter falls for a dashing young soldier, the hallways are ringing with the sound of wedding bells. However not everyone is in the mood for love, and a string of deceptions soon surround not only the young couple, but also the steadfastly single Beatrice and Benedick.

Director Simon Godwin (Twelfth Night, Antony and Cleopatra) returns following the award-winning success of his Romeo and Juliet film.

Recommended 14+. This production contains minor intimations of violence.
