The Stevenage Lytton Players
Director - David Slade
The Stevenage Lytton Players Autumn 2006 Drama Production was William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing and was performed at the Lytton Theatre.
The Lytton Players proudly present another Shakespeare play. In Much Ado About Nothing we travel to Messina, which has transformed from a village in Italy to a nightclub in London in the 1966. The Watch become bouncers, Leonato becomes the club owner, the soldiers are returning from the Indonesia-Malaysia war in Borneo and England beats West Germany 4-2 to win the World Cup (just thought we’d mention that one, it has nothing to do with the story at all).
This is one of Shakespeare’s most interesting comedies which at one stage almost becomes a tragedy. It’s about deception, lies, truth and most of all love.
