IAM client Alexander Varey has begun rehearsals as Claudio for Antic Disposition’s Much Ado about Nothing, touring from 9th July to 1st September.
“This summer, Antic Disposition stage Shakespeare’s much-loved comedy Much Ado About Nothing in seven magnificent cathedrals and London’s historic Gray’s Inn Hall.
Set in a sun-drenched French village celebrating the new peace of 1945, Antic Disposition’s Much Ado About Nothing introduces us to a cast of vibrant and eccentric characters, as the quiet village square turns battlefield for the ‘merry war’ between sparring partners Beatrice and Benedick.
Performed by a talented company of actors and musicians
drawn from both sides of the Channel, Antic Disposition’s Much Ado About Nothing draws its inspiration from the beloved films of French comic genius Jacques Tati (Jour de fête; Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot), combining the verbal fireworks of Shakespeare’s wittiest play with hilarious physical comedy and a score of exuberant live music and songs.
Much Ado in Gray’s Inn Hall
Following a tour of seven spectacular cathedrals, Much Ado About Nothing arrives at the beautiful sixteenth-century Gray’s Inn Hall in London – one of the few remaining original Shakespearean venues, having hosted the first recorded performance of The Comedy of Errors in 1594.
For fifteen performances only, Gray’s Inn Hall will be transformed into a French village square including pétanque court, local bar, and the opportunity to watch the story unfold from on-stage café tables complete with questionable waiter service. Santé!”
