Shakespeare's beloved comedy struts onto the stage with a stylish new vision - transported to 1980s Italy amidst the glitz and glamour of high society.

Sharp-witted lovers Beatrice and Benedick remain locked in their "merry war", but their verbal sparring and romantic rivalry now play out in the sartorial excesses of the decade.

Behind the designer labels, sparkling jewels, and sun-drenched locales, Shakespeare's playful characters and witty wordplay charm as brightly as ever.

Experience Much Ado as you've never seen it before, remixed with retro style, magnificently exaggerated by the extravagance of 80s Italian fashion.
