I Know You Of Old

Hero is dead. 

The funeral only hours away, those strange circumstances of her sudden expiration hang in the air - are the rumours about Hero to be trusted? The beacon-like coffin attracts three lonely souls: fiancé Claudio, wracked with grief and guilt; cousin Beatrice, acid-tongued, hungry for satisfaction; notorious playboy Benedick, burning for the game, smart-phone clasped close. Desperate to atone and do one last thing for Hero, Claudio focusses on his fellow ghouls - he will bring this prickly pair together. 

Using only Shakespeare's original text, David Fairs re-orchestrates Much Ado About Nothing into this new, alternative dark comedy - a juicy, messy, intimate farce. Benedick and Beatrice are legendary, their intense battles of wit hilarious and sparkling - but slice deeper: is there something rotten at the heart of the Merry War…?
