William Shakespeare’s timeless comedy “Much Ado About Nothing”

As I wrote in the description of this website, its purpose is to provide information about the Doctor Who series, characters and actors. The next video has nothing to do with the series itself, but David Tennant (Doctor Who number 10) and Catherine Tate (Donna Noble) appear together on stage for the first time in William Shakespeare’s timeless comedy Much Ado About Nothing. From my personal point of view it’s interesting to see how two actors that performed so well on the screen are performing on the theater stage.

Two young lovers, Claudio and Hero, are to be married imminently but the devious scheming of a resentful Prince looks set to thwart the nuptials. Meanwhile, marriage seems inconceivable for reluctant lovers Beatrice and Benedick whose endless witty sparring threatens to keep them apart forever.

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.
