Benedick is never getting married. Not ever! And Beatrice can't imagine a man she could tolerate, let alone fall in love with... They might just be the perfect couple!

This outdoor production places romantic misfits Benedick and Beatrice at the heart of a world populated by freaks and oddities; a Victorian travelling circus. And anything can and does happen when this theatrical cast of characters get together for a party...

Shakespeare's joyous comedy fizzes with sparkling wit and romance. And although the path of true love certainly does not run smooth, as the lovers face obstacles both accidental and on purpose, it's impossible not to be swept along by the original rom-com. It's the perfect show for a summer's evening!*

*If it's not the perfect summer evening we'll move inside to the Mainhouse.

This event will take place outside and you are welcome to bring your own chair or a blanket to sit on. You are also welcome to bring a picnic but please be aware that alcohol will be available to buy on the night and you are unable to bring your own due to licensing laws.
