Much Ado About Nothing, 15 - 30 July (University of Law Grounds)

READ THE STORY

Light the touch paper and stand well back... a glorious riot of colour and acerbic wit explodes when old fl ames, Beatrice and Benedick, are forced to confront their true feelings for each other. Set in the Victorious Summer of 1945, this fire-cracker romantic comedy is directed by Tom Littler (The Wind in the Willows, Twelfth Night) and sees GSC’s Co-Founders Sarah Gobran and Matt Pinches reprise the roles of Beatrice and Benedick. Much Ado marks GSC’s 30th production and was also the first play the company staged back in 2006.

Running time will be approx. 2hrs 30mins with interval. Exact times will be available nearer the time.

 

The Comedy of Errors, 14 June- 02 July (Guildford Castle Gardens) NOW FINISHED

Photos of The Comedy of Errors by Steve Porter

READ THE STORY

Strap yourself in for Shakespeare’s ultimate rollercoaster of comedy chaos, as two sets of identical twins arrive in the same town, on the same day, completely unaware of the other’s existence! Shakespeare’s shortest play is a glorious confection of confusion and slapstick comedy, as wives, debtors, friends and even the twins themselves are caught up in the mayhem which ensues. Staged between Guildford’s Castle Keep and the Bandstand, The Comedy of Errors reunites last year’s Alice in Wonderland Director/Designer team of Charlotte Conquest and PJ McEvoy. This production will be part-promenade.

PLEASE NOTE: For The Comedy of Errors there will be a short promenade section of the performance where the audience will travel from the bandstand area to the Keep and back. This will involve two short steep paths.

Exploring the Enduring Appeal of Much Ado About Nothing

Thursday 23 June, 1pm at Woking Lightbox Gallery, £6/£4 Lightbox Friends

2016 marks the 400th anniversary of the death of the world’s most celebrated playwright – William Shakespeare, and ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ is one of his most-loved comedies. At its core is the irrepressible double-act of Beatrice and Benedick, two of his most cherished characters, who have sworn never to fall in love. Their scenes sparkle with wit and word-play and we love them! Could they be Shakespeare's most 'real' creations? Ahead of our open-air production this July, GSC Co-Founder Matt Pinches examines this most effervescent of romantic comedies. Advance booking required. Talks last for approximately 45 minutes with a short time for questions.
