Love, honour and second chances are the themes of the William Shakespeare comedy Much Ado About Nothing, which opens at Sheringham Little Theatre on Tuesday.

Directed by acclaimed actor and Little Theatre patron Desmond Barrit, the specially-adapted, family-friendly version of the play is being staged as part of the Little Theatre's "Early Rep" season.

It stars Little Theatre regulars Simon Stanhope and Martha Swann as reluctant soulmates Beatrice and Benedick, who are tricked by their friends Hero and Claudio (Holly Walters and Brett Lee Roberts) into confessing their love for each other.

Theatre director Debbie Thompson said the production promised to offer excellent entertainment, both to people familiar with Shakespeare's plays, and for those new to the Bard's work.
