Much Ado About Nothing
The Chantry, Thornbury
The beautiful walled garden of the historic Chantry in Thornbury will be the setting for a production of the classic Shakespeare comedy by the world renowned Festival Players Theatre Company.
The sparring antics of Shakespeare’s erstwhile lovers, Beatrice and Benedick, provide great hilarity for the other members of the household who plot to reunite them. Against this background, another romance is almost derailed by the machinations of a jealous Duke until the local constabulary bumble upon his plans.
This delicious comedy, popular for over 400 years, will be performed for you by The Festival Players acclaimed all-male Company, in a crystal clear, energetic, colourful production, enhanced by original songs composed by Johnny Coppin. Don’t miss this Summer treat; fun for all the family.
Open-air performance will take place regardless of the weather. No ticket refund will be given in the case of bad weather. Refunds will be given if perfomance is cancelled by the Festival Players due to dangerous weather conditions.
Gardens open at 1.30pm. Limited seating provided, you are welcome to bring your own low-backed seating, blankets and a picnic. Tea/Coffee, ice creams, refreshments and Licensed bar available.
