Toby, Year 7, Reviews 'Much Ado About Nothing'
Toby from Year 7 writes about our recent trip to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre to see Much Ado About Nothing.
Last week Year 7 had the pleasure of going to see a performance of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. Even though it was modernised, it still told the story in the original form. I think that all the actors were good. In my opinion, I think the actor who played Beatrice was the best because she played the role convincingly and kept Benedick on his toes. It was a wonderful trip. Thank you to Miss Keaveney who organised this trip.
After watching the performance we have written an essay on the changing relationship between Beatrice and Benedick. The play made the performance memorable and I found the essay easier to write as a result.
The play was performed at The Globe Theatre, a reconstruction of the theatre that Shakespeare’s plays would have been originally performed in. It was smaller than I had anticipated. I didn’t realise it was an outdoor theatre, so it was rather cold sitting there for over an hour, but the laughter warmed me through!
