On Tuesday, 31st July, 2012, WinkBall video reporters Feona and Siobhan were in Stratford-upon-Avon at the Courtyard Theatre to see a modern telling of William Shakespeare's 'Much Ado About Nothing'.
This vibrant and colourful production transposes Shakespeare’s vivacious, and at times unsettling, comedy of love and deceit to an Indian setting.
Much Ado About Nothing is directed by Iqbal Khan whose credits include Broken Glass (Tricycle Theatre, 2011) and The Killing of Sister George (Arts Theatre, 2011). Actress, comedienne, writer and singer, Meera Syal, will play Beatrice opposite Paul Bhattacharjee as Benedick.
As well as interviewing members of the audience about their opinions of the show we also spoke to the director himself, Iqbal Khan before the performance begun.
