Shakespeare’s much-loved comedy of new beginnings

“Can Katherine Parkinson and John Heffernan as Beatrice and Benedick bring the necessary spark, melancholy and laughter required to Shakespeare’s autumnal romantic comedy? It’s a play which genuinely requires chemistry to be a joy. Simon Godwin, who has delivered at this address over and over –including with a digital version of Romeo and Juliet during the pandemic—is on hand to ensure there is the necessary sexual tension and deal with the funny business that so often falls a wee bit flat. When this play works it can be totally enchanting and with the NT in need of an outright hit, let’s hope it delivers.”

Tickets from £20

Overview

Escape to the Italian Riviera with a cast including Katherine Parkinson (Home, I'm Darling, The IT Crowd) and John Heffernan (Dracula, She Stoops to Conquer).

Since 1931, the legendary family-run Hotel Messina has been visited by artists, celebrities and royalty. 

When the current owner’s daughter falls for a dashing young soldier, the hallways are ringing with the sound of wedding bells. 

However, not all the guests are in the mood for love, and a string of deceptions soon surround not only the young couple, but also the steadfastly single Beatrice and Benedick.

Director Simon Godwin (Twelfth Night, Antony and Cleopatra) returns following the award-winning success of his Romeo & Juliet film.
