CASTING UPDATE FOR JOSIE ROURKE’S PRODUCTION OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE’S MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING

 

Full casting is announced for Josie Rourke’s new production of William Shakespeare’s timeless comedy Much Ado About Nothing

Joining David Tennant (Benedick) and Catherine Tate (Beatrice) are Tom Bateman (Claudio), Alex Beckett (Borachio), Joshua Berg (Titus), Jonathan Coy (Leonato), Anna Farnworth (Innogen), Mike Grady (Verges), Clive Hayward (Hugh Oatcake/Friar Francis), Derek Howard (Angelo), Kathryn Hunt (Ursula), Adam James (Don Pedro), Lee Knight (Conrade), Elliot Levey (Don John), Nicholas Lumley (George Seacole), Sarah MacRae (Hero), John Ramm (Dogberry), Enzo Squillino Jnr (Balthasar/Sexton), Leo Staar (Messenger), Natalie Thomas (Margaret) and Hannah Warren-Green (Maria).

Opening at Wyndham’s Theatre on Wednesday 1 June with previews from Monday 16 May and booking until Saturday 3 September 2011, Much Ado About Nothing is presented in the West End by Sonia Friedman Productions.   Designs are by Rob Jones with lighting by Peter Mumford, music by Michael Bruce and sound by Emma Laxton. 

Two young lovers, Claudio and Hero, are to be married imminently but the devious scheming of a resentful Prince looks set to thwart the nuptials.  Meanwhile, marriage seems inconceivable for reluctant lovers Beatrice (Catherine Tate) and Benedick (David Tennant) whose endless witty sparring threatens to keep them apart forever.
