There is Much Ado about Newmarket

Sometimes a show just feels right and when that happens, it can override a multitude of small objections.
That's the case with the production of Much Ado About Nothing, currently delighting audience on Fairy Lake in Newmarket as part of the sixth season for the Resurgence Theatre Company at the York Shakespeare Festival.

Director David Ferry has created a reading of the play that somehow manages to be faithful and outrageous at the same time.
Let me explain.

Shakespeare's comedy features those two witty romantic adversaries, Beatrice and Benedick, in a story of love, hate, betrayal and redemption. It features everything from saucy banter to slapstick highjinks, with a side journey into nearly tragic territory."
