The Limping Chicken
Review: Much Ado About Nothing by 1623 theatre and Purple Theatre
By Rebecca A Withey | September 12, 2022
Much Ado About Nothing is a lively play which explores themes around relationships and looks at attitudes towards genders and stereotypes. I found the writing to be very relevant and enjoyed the arguments that fiery Beatrice – played by Emily Howlett – put across. “If I was a man…!” She declares several times, leaving the audience to reflect on the restrictive ideals that women have been bound by for centuries.
