Much Ado About Nothing on Mixcloud

Spe­cial­ly-record­ed for Fan­ta­sy Faire Radio and per­formed at Fan­ta­sy Faire, the Faire­lands Play­ers pro­duc­tion of Shake­speare’s Much Ado About Noth­ing is now avail­able to lis­ten again, on Mix­cloud. Tune in for this mag­i­cal ren­di­tion of the play in a Faire­lands set­ting, adapt­ed for radio by Saf­fia Wid­der­shins and Zan­der Greene.

The sol­diers, led by the noble Don Pedro (Cor­wyn Allen) are return­ing from vic­to­ry in war and look­ing for­ward to a lit­tle rest and relax­ation. With accom­mo­da­tion gen­er­ous­ly pro­vid­ed by Leona­to (Elrik Mer­lin), it’s not sur­pris­ing that some of the army begin to think about love… and young Clau­dio (Mavromichali Szon­di) is much tak­en with Leonato’s daugh­ter Hero (Christy Grantham).

But one who resists all talk of love is Benedick (Zan­der Greene). He is com­plete­ly imper­vi­ous to falling in love, scorns the whole thing – and Leonato’s niece Beat­rice (Ava­Jean West­land) is in total agree­ment with him. It’s the one thing that they do agree about – they quar­rel about every­thing else!

But there are plots being formed – plots to make peo­ple fall in love… and out of love. And some of these are being helped along by Don Pedro’s resent­ful broth­er Don John (Alix Rey­naud) and his fol­low­er Bora­chio (Kay­den OCon­nell).

Will true love be destroyed by evil plot­ting? Or will the Faire­land Pawlice save the day and ensure that true love tri­umphs?
