This month, the Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory (stf) theatre company will be celebrating their 20th anniversary with a brand-new adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing at East London’s hidden gem.
Following on from a critically acclaimed run at the Tobacco Factory in Bristol, the production makes its London debut at the oldest working music hall in the world, for a limited run of fifteen performances.
Following on from their restaging of Othello, stf return with their take on Shakespeare’s comedy about the precarious path to finding love, and how both innocent trickery and treacherous pretence can have disastrous consequences.
Home from war, a group of soldiers attempt to put their fighting days behind them. But adjusting to civilian life isn’t easy, especially when love is thrown into the mix. How do you let go of your demons? How do you learn to be your real self again? And what does that mean for the friendships that helped you survive?
Directed by Elizabeth Freestone and set against the unique backdrop of Wilton’s, oldest working music hall in the world, this dark comedy promises to be tumultuous, riotous and entirely unpredictable.
East London’s hidden gem, Wilton’s Music Hall, re-opened the doors to its Grade II listed building in 2015 after extensive refurbishment. The oldest Grand Music Hall in the world, Wilton’s is now a vibrant multi-arts venues, home to a year-round programme of live music and theatre productions.
