Shakespeare on the Green is excited to announce our next outdoor production "Much Ado About Nothing" will open at the Coal Loader in Waverton in November.

The Coal Loader is a former industrial site now transformed into a beautiful outdoor space beside the harbour. What better way to celebrate Spring by packing a picnic and enjoying Shakespeare's famous comedy.

much ado about nothingShakespeare on the Green’s version of this famous romantic comedy is set in summer towards the end of World War 2. The action takes place at a grand Sydney home when the characters are on leave from the Australian Navy.

Claudio and Hero love each other and nothing is capable of keeping them apart. Claudio’s best friend, Benedick loves Beatrice (and she him) but because neither will admit it, nothing is capable of bringing them together. That is, until Benedick is maneuvered by his commanding officer to prove his love for Beatrice – by killing his best friend.

In a miracle of comic and dramatic suspense, the romance is driven by the lover’s denial. Beatrice and Benedick are perhaps Shakespeare’s wittiest and most charming pair of lovers.
