Much Ado About Nothing on Mixcloud

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Wednesday, 3 May, 2017

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?
