Inside the Shakespeare rehearsal room
Our cast are in the final week of rehearsals for our production of Much Ado About Nothing, soon to be opening under the stars at Kilkenny Arts Festival. In a rare break, director Ronan Phelan sat down for this interview to talk about the gender-swapping casting of Clare Barrett, setting the play in a mobile home park, and why audiences never tire of the famous love-to-hate-eachother couple Benedick and Beatrice.
If you missed the video of our cast describing the story of Much Ado, you can watch the video here.
Rough Magic’s production of Much Ado About Nothing will premiere at the Kilkenny Arts Festival.
You can catch it between 8th – 17th August at 8pm, with two matinees at 3.30pm
