About the Show
Shakespeare’s comedy meets reality TV in this adaptation by poet and playwright Debris Stevenson ('Poet in da Corner').
Claudio and Hero have fallen for one another fast and are engaged after a short courtship. But not everyone finds romance so straightforward ... Benedick and Beatrice agree that love is scoff-worthy ... and that's about the only thing they agree on! But there’s someone for everyone, even if they’re right under your nose.
Josie Daxter directs this modern-day love story that goes behind the cameras into a loved-up world of gossip, matchmaking, and manipulation.
“The only downside is that the production is short and snappy, clocking in at a breakneck 90 minutes, which means some of the plot gets frazzled along the way; and with a little more breathing room, the cast could really flex their theatrical muscles.”
