Will Hero and Beatrice get together in Much Ado?

The Shakespeare Sisters are excited to announce that the gala screening of their new drama MUCH ADO will be taking place at London’s Prince Charles cinema on 25th February.

Directed by Hillary and Anna-Elizabeth Shakespeare, MUCH ADO is a modern adaptation of William Shakespeare’s classic, Much Ado About Nothing, using the original dialogue.

As with the classic story, the film follows Hero and Beatrice, cousins and best friends, who have very different approaches to love. Beatrice, burned once, is fiercely avoiding her arrogant ex-boyfriend Benedick and has sworn off men in general. Hero, a true romantic, is deeply in love with Benedick’s friend Claudio, but too shy to say it. When they get trapped in a house with the entire boy’s rugby team, they’ll be forced to face the questions they’d been avoiding.

Excited about the upcoming screenings Directors Hillary and Anna-Elizabeth Shakespeare said “We’re really excited to release this film and can’t wait to take ‘Much Ado’ around the U.K from screens in London, starting at The Prince Charles, to Suffolk where the film was shot, to a special event in Shakespeare’s old school in Stratford! Our take was to focus the story on Beatrice and Hero’s perspective especially, and tell it from a coming of age perspective, where the characters are all university students at a house party. It was really fun working with such a young cast and finding a new way to tell our beloved classic.
