Much Ado About Nothing
Thursday 16 August
 For 2018, Merely Theatre embark on a third national tour with Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing which will be at Aberystwyth Arts Centre on Thursday 16 August.

Merely Theatre create energetic, crystal clear Shakespeare productions. Audiences follow the story better than ever and feel actively involved. Inventive and relentless, their work is informed by years of honing their principles in rep. The result is a dynamic cast of actors telling these amazing stories through sheer imaginary force.

This 2018 tour sees established Shakespearean director Abigail Anderson take the helm. Anderson has directed over 90 plays, including 18 of Shakespeare’s plays, that have been performed all over the UK, North America, Poland and France. Anderson was Associate Director at Theatre Royal in Bury St Edmunds from 2008-11 and has been an Assistant Director for the Royal Shakespeare Company and Shakespeare’s Globe.

Over the last two years Merely Theatre toured with the same company of 10 actors, with a cast of 5 taking to the stage each evening. For the 2018 tour the company has grown to a cast of 6 and will see some new faces for returning audiences. With 3 female and 3 male actors Merely Theatre continues it’s commitment to gender-balanced casting.

This performance will form part of The Summer House programme - a feast of international circus, spectacle, live music, drama and fun kids activities!
