Katherine Parkinson (THE IT CROWD) and John Heffernan (DRACULA) lead the cast in Shakespeare’s romcom of sun, sea and mistaken identity.
The legendary family-run Hotel Messina on the Italian Riveria has been visited by artists, celebrities and royalty. But when the owner’s daughter weds a dashing young soldier, not all guests are in the mood for love.
A string of scandalous deceptions soon surround not only the young couple, but also the adamantly single Beatrice and Benedick.
Following the award-winning success of National Theatre Live’s ROMEO & JULIET, TWELFTH NIGHT and ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA, director Simon Godwin returns with this irresistible comedy, broadcast live from the National Theatre stage.
