Theatre fans are in for a treat on Valentine’s Day, as Digital Theatre is hosting an online watchalong of Shakespeare’s romantic comedy, Much Ado About Nothing, starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate.
Don’t fancy the run of the mill romcom films on TV this year? Try something a bit different – purchase Much Ado About Nothing from Digital Theatre, press play on Friday 14 February at 7pm GMT, and share your reactions in real time with theatre lovers across the world. Join in the conversation online using the Twitter handle @DigitalTheatre and the hashtag #MuchAdoOnScreen.
Directed by Josie Rourke, Artistic Director of the Donmar Warehouse, Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s great plays and reminds us all of the failings and triumphs of the human condition in our never ending search for perfect love.
Our previous watchalong, Stephen Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along, saw fans, the cast, the director and journalists Tweeting from the UK, US, Australia and beyond; starting conversations that continued well after the production ended.
