Photo Flash: Inside Rehearsals For Northern Broadsides and New Vic Theatre's MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING

Northern Broadsides and New Vic Theatre have released rehearsal images for their forthcoming touring co-production of William Shakespeare's glorious tale of antagonistic romance and chaotic comedy -Much Ado About Nothing.

Six long years of war are finally over. Returning soldiers swap the booming battlefield for a landscape of love, masked balls and much-needed laughter. Two young dreamers (Hero and Claudio) fall head over heels, while two others (Benedick and Beatrice) resume their combative courtship. As faithful friends plot romance and a vengeful brother plans destruction, can true love conquer all, or will whispers and rumour win out?

Directed by Northern Broadsides' Artistic Director Conrad Nelson, the production's excellent cast will feature Richard J Fletcher (Oh What A Lovely War, Oldham Coliseum); Rachel Hammond(Babe: The Sheep Pig); Sophia Hatfield (When We Were Married, Northern Broadsides); Anthony Hunt (The Commitments, West End and Hard Times, Northern Broadsides);Sarah Kameela Impey(The Tempest, RSC and Pinocchio, National Theatre); Linford Johnson (The Rise And Fall Of Little Voice, Park Theatre and War Horse, National Theatre); James McClean (New Tricks, Bolton Octagon);Isobel Middleton (Anna Tregorran in The Archers, BBC Radio 4); David Nellist (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and War Horse, National Theatre and Sherlock, BBC); Heather Phoenix (The Rivals, Theatre by the Lake); Matt Rixon (Hairspray, UK); Robin Simpson (Midsummer Night's Dream and Macbeth, Shakespeare's Rose Theatre); Simeon Truby (The Pitman Painters, New Vic Theatre); Robert Wade (Cyrano, Northern Broadsides and New Vic Theatre) and Andrew Whitehead (An August Bank Holiday Lark, Northern Broadsides and New Vic Theatre).
