Robin Simpson will play Benedick in Northern Broadsides and New Vic Theatre’s forthcoming co-production of Much Ado About Nothing.
Robin will step into the role after Reece Dinsdale, who unfortunately had to leave due to a family illness. Robin will perform opposite Isobel Middleton in the play, which opens at the New Vic this February ahead of a tour.
Six long years of war are finally over. Returning soldiers swap the booming battlefield for a landscape of love, masked balls and much-needed laughter. Two young dreamers — Hero and Claudio — fall head over heels, while two others — Benedick and Beatrice — resume their combative courtship.
As faithful friends plot romance and a vengeful brother plans destruction, can true love conquer all, or will whispers and rumour win out?
Much Ado About Nothing is at the New Vic, Newcastle-under-Lyme from 8th February – 2nd March before transferring to a national tour up to 25th May 2019. Tickets cost £15 – £24.50. Book online at newvictheatre.org.uk or call the Box Office on 01782 717 962.
