In Much Ado About Nothing, the war of words between Beatrice is fast and furious. Set in Sicily, in the aftermath of a recent battle, the Governor’s house is filled with young men eager to show their mettle. The wordplay is witty but though the play is a comedy, parts of it become very dark indeed. This course consists of ten practical acting workshops and requires confident English speaking skills. This is a double course which can only be taken with Sb1. The maximum number of students on this course is 15.
