What’s it all about?

“The play is an brand new adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing written and produced by Thread. It is a dark, clever comedy following a theatre company performing at the Fringe during a zombie apocalypse. The crew secure the space and the cast valiantly continue, despite their depleting numbers but as the show progresses the personal relationships spill over into the action on stage. Beatrice is full of regret after too much tequila led to a night of passion with Benedick, who unlike Beatrice is feeling rather pleased with himself. Meanwhile both Claudio and Hero seem a little unwell and not their usual placid selves, the line ‘kill Claudio’ has never seemed to apt.. Much Ado About Zombies offers the familiarity of Shakespeare’s beloved comedy, whilst engaging with the very current cultural phenomenon of zombies. The audience are given an interactive and a fresh incarnation of a classic play.”
