Production

Light the touch paper and stand well back... a glorious riot of colour and acerbic wit exploded when old flames, Beatrice and Benedick, were forced to confront their true feelings for each other.

Our 30th production was set in the Victorious Summer of 1945, and directed by Tom Littler (The Wind in the Willows, Twelfth Night). It saw GSC’s Co-Founders Sarah Gobran and Matt Pinches reprise the roles of Beatrice and Benedick, and was also the first play the company staged back in 2006.

‘An excellent cast and production to celebrate GSC’s tenth anniversary.’

Surrey Advertiser *****

‘Guildford Shakespeare Company has again produced a masterful, original interpretation of a Shakespeare play. Every actor’s performance is remarkable for its authenticity and clarity of interpretation and delivery.’

Essential Surrey *****

‘There is a celebratory mood to the show… under Tom Littler’s slick direction the feel-good factors keeps on bubbling up like the champagne.’

The Stage ****

‘Saw this Friday, outstanding performance, set design, setting and value for money don't miss it & pack your picnic’

‘Another entrancing evening of open air theatre with Matt, Sarah & @GuildfordBard team.  ‘Much Ado’ is a MUST see!’
