Even more ado about nothing


It’s amazing to think we’ve been enjoying Shakespeare for more than 400 years and he’s still the most performed playwright of all time. Much Ado About Nothing, William Shakespeare’s romantic comedy, comes to Half House Farm, Three Oaks, opening on Friday June 16 and will be performed outdoors by Bowler Crab Productions for two consecutive weekends before going off on tou.

The artistic director and founder of Bowler Crab, Stephen John, said: “Much Ado About Nothing is without doubt one of Shakespeare’s finest works, with every scene packed with pranks, plots stunningly well-written humour.” Stephen said that whilst he is well versed with Shakespearean comedies, having directed A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Twelfth Night, Love’s Labour’s Lost, Measure for Measure, The Tempest and All’s Well That Ends Well, “This particular comedy is a rollercoaster of entertainment and is shaping up to be Bowler Crab’s finest production to date.” He commented that he is absolutely delighted with the talented cast of 10 and for this, Bowler Crab’s tenth Shakespearean show, he has welcomed six new actors to the team.

Tickets for the productions in Three Oaks are £15 for sale online and the dates are:

  • Fri June 16 and Sat June 17 (6:30 pm open/7:30pm start)  
  • Sunday June 18 (2pm open/3pm start)
  • Fri June 23 and Sat June 24 (6:30pm open/7:30pm Start)
