Much Ado

Summer Tour 2022


Come and enjoy an hour or two in a glorious setting with Shakespeare’s most popular bantering couple -  Beatrice and Benedick.  Hilariously awkward in each other’s presence, their witty repartee leads to love – with a little help from their friends.


Throw in a delightfully conniving baddie out to create mischief, a young and naïve but dashing couple and the out-of-their-depth local police force and you have the recipe for a truly delightful bit of theatrical escapism.



"It was awesome. A brilliant play, superb actors, at a beautiful venue. What a wonderful experience on a sunny, summer, Sunday afternoon."


"Had a wonderful night at Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club watching Much Ado About Nothing. The company are first rate, brilliant acting and production. Can’t wait to see them again."


"Thanks for your production of Much Ado about Nothing at Bletchley Park. Perfect location for open air theatre."

 "Saw you yesterday at Bletchley Park and loved it! A really good, fun adaptation. Thank you."

"A wonderfully amusing and fun adaptation; Actors were brilliant. we all enjoyed it immensely, And enjoyed tasting some of the Oaken Grove wine."

"Wonderful show... Hilarious and very entertaining"

"Most enjoyable performance"
