The Tamaritans present Much Ado About Nothing

Thursday, November 2

Join us this Autumn as we take one of Shakespeare’s best loved comedies, MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, to fabulous Mexico.

Setting this classic tale of love, romance, scandal and miscommunication against the backdrop of Mexico’s Day Of The Dead celebrations and in a Hacienda owned by the Leonata family in the 1980’s, the Tamaritans will be taking you on a hilarious journey with bandits and Mariachi bands. The Leonata family themselves are a bunch of ex-pat Brits with a dubious past who have taken up residence in the Casa Merida. They invite a bunch of bandits led by Don Pedro and this brother Don Juan for the festivities. Over the course of the weekend Benedick and Beatrice spar, while Claudio and Hero fall in love and a wedding is hastily arranged. But with Don Juan and his conspirators meddling things go horribly wrong…….

With masks, mayhem and marriage…amid tequilla and the Day of the Dead, this is not to be missed! We invite you to Join us for this fabulous fast-paced take on a classic romantic-comedy. On 31st October there will be a prize for the best fancy dress costume in the audience, and on 2nd of November (which is the Day Of The Dead) a best mask competition. However, on any night you can bring your own mask if you wish the remain incognito!

The play runs from 31 October to 5 November at the Ivybridge Watermark, and tickets can be purchased directly from the venue or online www.ivybridgewatermark.co.uk
