as part of Theatre From London
Part of the Theatre From London Series: Escape to the Italian Riviera with Shakespeare’s much-loved comedy of new beginnings. Since the 1930s, the legendary family-run Hotel Messina has been visited by artists, celebrities and royalty. When the current owner’s daughter falls for a dashing young soldier, the hallways are ringing with the sound of wedding bells. However, not all the guests are in the mood for love, and a string of deceptions soon surround not only the young couple, but also the steadfastly single Beatrice and Benedick.
Featuring a cast that includes Katherine Parkinson (HOME, I'M DARLING, THE IT CROWD) and John Heffernan (DRACULA, SHE STOOPS TO CONQUER), Simon Godwin directs this irresistible comedy, captured live from the National Theatre stage.
