Synopsis


Set in a sun-drenched French village celebrating the new peace of 1945, Antic Disposition's Much Ado About Nothing draws its inspiration from the beloved films of French comic genius Jacques Tati (Jour de fête; Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot; Mon Oncle).


Combining the verbal fireworks of Shakespeare's wittiest play with sharp physical comedy, this production is set to a score of live music and songs of the period.
