Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing was on at The Old Vic Theatre starring James Earl Jones and Vanessa Redgrave as Beatrice and Benedick. It was only on until 16th November 2013.
Directed by Mark Rylance and produced in association with Nicolas Kent, the show has been a huge success and a popular version of this famous Shakespearean comedy with Jones and Redgrave being much older than the usual actors who play the roles.
After falling in love, Claudio and Hero plan to get married. Despite their happiness, the Prince sets out to sabotage their nuptials in the form of a rather compromising case of mistaken identity. Meanwhile, marriage seems inconceivable for reluctant lovers Beatrice and Benedick (Redgrave and Jones), who share a love of hatred. The others plot to make them fall in love by a comical process of misunderstandings, but will their plan work?
