Much Ado About Downloads
Digital Theatre – the online company that provide theatre lovers with downloadable performances of some of the finest productions Britain has to offer – are streaming the DoctorDonna adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing now for as little as £5.99.
The record-breaking Josie Rourke re-imaging of the play saw David Tennant and Catherine Tate reunited on stage as Benedick and Beatrice two sparing reluctant lovers to whom marriage is just as inconceivable as it is desirous for young lovers Hero and Claudio, who find their ideal wedded bless threatened by the resentful Prince.
The production which garnered positive reviews for its bold design, cheeky relocation to 1980’s Gibraltar and its revitalising wit is available either to rent for 48 hours at £5.99, as a Standard Definition download for £8.99 or a High Definition download for £10.99.
A trailer for the production (which disappointingly doesn’t use the phrase: ‘From the Makers of Lover’s Labours Lost…’) is available to view online.
