'Much Ado About Nothing' starring Meera Syal
Meera Syal is to star in Much Ado About Nothing this summer as part of the World Shakespeare Festival.
The stage play is directed by Iqbal Khan whose credits include Broken Glass (Tricycle Theatre, 2011) and The Killing of Sister George (Arts Theatre, 2011).
Actress, comedienne, writer and singer, Meera Syal, will play Beatrice.
This vibrant and colourful production, starring Meera Syal, transposes Shakespeare’s vivacious – and at times unsettling – comedy of love and deceit to an Indian setting.
Meera Syal is perhaps best known as one of the creators of the radio and television series Goodness Gracious Me, in which she also appeared, as well as The Kumars at No 42.
This production, along with Gregory Doran's Julius Caesar, will transfer to the Noel Coward Theatre in London from late August to October 2012.
The World Shakespeare Festival is a celebration of Shakespeare as the world's playwright, produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company in an unprecedented collaboration with leading UK and international arts organisations, and with Globe to Globe, a major international programme produced by Shakespeare's Globe.
It opened on Shakespeare’s birthday, 23 April.
Thousands of artists from around the world will take part in almost 70 productions, events and exhibitions across the UK, in locations including Stratford-upon-Avon, London, Newcastle, Gateshead, Wales and Scotland as well as online.
Tickets to the show can be purchased by calling the box office on 0844 800 1110.
The shows take place between 26 July - 15 September 2012 at the The Courtyard Theatre (RSC), Staffordshire.
