Be transported to 1940s Bournemouth where The Women's Institute are putting on Shakespeare’s 'Much Ado About Nothing’ to mark the end of the Second World War.

Beatrice and Benedick continue their war of words with barbs flying around like bullets and divisions between two brothers threaten everyone’s happiness. Fake news, rumours and the double standards between women and men are all lit up in Shakespeare’s witty, look at the best and worst of human nature.

Can we be brave enough to speak the truth in relationships and risk being hurt? Come and immerse yourself into a world of bunting, home guard heroics, make do and mend in this warm and witty comedy with a twist. You are guests in the grounds of an idyllic summer retreat as the war ends and love reigns. Please dress in your best 40s outfits. We look forward to seeing your headscarves, pin curls and nylons! 

Much Ado about Nothing features performers from BA (Hons) Acting; set and costumes from BA (Hons) Costume and BA (Hons) Performance Design and Film Costume; and hair and make-up from BA (Hons) Make Up for Media and Performance
