The Rose Theatre have announced a new stage adaptation of Shakespeare's masterpiece, Much Ado About Nothing, a Rose co-production with Granville & Parham Productions and antic | face, starring actress and TV presenter Mel Giedroyc. The production marks the Rose’s 10th anniversary and is set to be one of the highlights of what promises to be a very exciting year.

Don Pedro is victorious. Having won a turf war down in the city, the Mafia overlord and his entourage take over the luxury spa hotel Messina in order to hide-out, party and recover deep in the Sicilian hills. As hotel owner Leonato fawns over his clan boss, the no-nonsense, customer experience manager Beatrice (Mel Giedroyc) has unfinished business to attend to with Benedick, Pedro’s commitment-phobic consigliere. But when Hero is disgraced, the party is over, love turns to hatred and new battle lines are drawn.

The play reunites Mel Giedroyc with director Simon Dormandy after they worked together in the critically acclaimed Luce by JC Lee at Southwark Playhouse. Not only a household name for her television presenting and comedy work, Mel is an outstandingly subtle, powerful actor, as well as a very funny one, and an unforgettable Beatrice.
