Fyvie Castle

Much Ado About Nothing

FYVIE CASTLE, NATIONAL TRUST FOR SCOTLAND

18 July - 7.00pm

Armed with all manner of musical instruments, The Fools 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. Expect a fast-paced, musically-driven show, using all sorts of different instruments, plenty of multi-roling and many a quick costume change along the way!

This performance is an outdoor performance. We recommend that you bring blankets/chairs to sit on. Do bring coats and warm clothing, and if rain is forecast bring a raincoat. We ask that you don't bring umbrellas as these can obscure the view for other people in the audience. In the event of rain the performance will continue! The venue will be open for picnics 45 minutes before the performance starts. 7.00pm start time, picnics welcome from 6.15pm.

THE PLAY

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. Meanwhile, Benedick and Beatrice find themselves stubbornly fighting their feelings for one another.
