A Sheffield Theatres and Ramps on the Moon Production
By William Shakespeare
Adapted and directed by Robert Hastie
‘I do love nothing in the world so well as you. Is not that strange?’
Besotted young couple Claudio and Hero have fallen fast and are quickly engaged. Not everyone finds romance so straightforward – Benedick balks at the very thought of it and Beatrice agrees with him, on that if nothing else. But somewhere in this world, there’s someone for everyone, even if they’re right under your nose.
Shakespeare’s raucous comedy is directed by Robert Hastie (‘Coriolanus,’ ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’). Every performance features the use of integrated creative sign language, audio description and captioning.
Content warning: This production explores themes including violence, emotional abuse, alcohol abuse, death, sexism and misogyny. These themes are not performed on the stage, but are within the writing and script.
