Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd) and

John Heffernan (Dracula) lead the cast in Shakespeare’s romcom of sun, sea and mistaken identity. 

The legendary family-run Hotel Messina on the Italian Riveria has been visited by artists, celebrities and royalty. But when the owner’s daughter weds a dashing young soldier, not all guests are in the mood for love. A string of scandalous deceptions soon surround not only the young couple, but also the adamantly single Beatrice and Benedick. 

Following the success of National Theatre Live’s

Romeo & Juliet, Twelfth Night and Antony and Cleopatra, director Simon Godwin returns with this irresistible comedy, broadcast live from the National Theatre stage.
