Much ado about the weather?

Theatre company Rain or Shine, hailed by The Stage as ‘one of the best companies touring open air theatre’ are set to delight audiences once again this summer with their production of Shakespeare’s merry war of words and wit ‘Much Ado About Nothing’.

The play is set during the time of the Great War. It’s November and the men of the British military forces are returning to their homes. Don Pedro and his comrades are coming at last to Messina (a little-known village on the edge of the Cotswolds) where they are met by friends old and new. From the dastardly Don John to the daft Sergeant Dogberry, ‘Much Ado’ delivers revellers, rascals and the all-important love story.

Audiences are invited to bring hampers and blankets for the performance, which is taking place at Kinlet Hall, near Bewdley on Sunday 1 July at 3pm, and Severn Valley Country Park on Friday 10 August at 7.30pm – call 0330 660 0541 for tickets.
