Shakespeare at Eastbury – Much ado about nothing
Five actors, with all manner of musical instruments, present an inventive take on Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing - a rip-roaring comedy of quarrels, deceptions and a frustratingly stupid man called Dogberry.
The Three Inch Fools are a five-strong troupe of actors, performing a highly imaginative and vibrantly musical take on Shakespeare's plays across the UK. The Fools do Shakespeare differently - a fast-paced, musically-driven style, using all sorts of different instruments, plenty of multi-roling and many a quick costume change along the way.
Returning from the battlefield as brave soldiers, Claudio and Benedick find themselves battling feelings of the heart as they are reunited with Hero and Beatrice. A series of misunderstandings, mistaken identity, and a scheming brother threatens to sabotage Claudio’s attempts to woo Hero. While Benedick and Beatrice find themselves stubbornly fighting their feelings for one another.
