Iris Theatre presents William Shakespeare’s great comedy Much Ado About Nothing and a new adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s swash-buckling novel Treasure Island in innovative promenade productions this summer in the heart of the West End.

Much Ado About Nothing is a delightful celebration of the overwhelming power of love. Hero loves Claudio, and nothing, not even the scheming slander of a resentful Prince, will stop them from being together. Beatrice hates Benedick, and Benedick despises Beatrice, but the more they bicker and fight, the deeper they fall in love. This is a laugh-out-loud comedy for all ages.

Iris Theatre will present Much Ado About Nothing in a promenade production in the grounds and interior of St Paul’s (the Actors’ Church) in the heart of London’s Covent Garden from Wednesday 22 June – Friday 22 July.

The season of Much Ado About Nothing will be followed by the second Iris Theatre in-house production of the summer, a family friendly, interactive version of Treasure Island perfect for buccaneer boys and pirate lasses aged 6+ from 27 July – 28 August. (Pirate costumes are positively encouraged. Argh!)

All hands on deck and get set for the adventure of a lifetime! Join the young Jim Hawkins aboard the Hispaniola on a daring voyage across the seven seas. Meet Long John Silver and his madcap crew on the hunt for Captain Flint’s hidden gold…but beware of the Black Spot!

Iris Theatre will stage this new version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s swash-buckling novel in a promenade production in the grounds and interior of St Paul’s (the Actors’ Church) in the heart of London’s Covent Garden from Wednesday 27 July – Sunday 28 August.
