Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps
James Earl Jones and Vanessa Redgrave play warring lovers Benedick and Beatrice in Shakespeares timeless comedy Much Ado About Nothing, directed by Mark Rylance.
While young lovers Claudio and Hero have their forthcoming nuptials threatened by the resentful scheming of a Prince, marriage seems out of the question for reluctant lovers Beatrice and Benedick in this witty comedy about the never ending search for perfect love.
James Earl Jones and Vanessa Redgrave recently starred in Driving Miss Daisy both in the West End and on Broadway and will reunite on The Old Vic stage to play these iconic roles for the first time.
Mark Rylance was Artistic Director of Shakespeares Globe for ten years, during this time he directed and performed in numerous productions. His recent acting credits include Richard III and Twelfth Night (Shakespeares Globe and West End) and the critically acclaimed Jerusalem.
