While young lovers Claudio and Hero threaten to have their imminent nuptials thwarted by the resentful scheming of a Prince, marriage seems inconceivable for reluctant lovers Beatrice (Vanessa Redgrave) and Benedick (James Earl Jones). Redgrave and Earl Jones take on these roles for the first time.
James Earl Jones and Vanessa Redgrave recently starred in Alfred Uhry’s Driving Miss Daisy both in the West End and on Broadway.
Further cast to be announced.
