The Clark presents performances from London’s National Theatre in celebration of the Manton Foundation’s commitment to British art.

In a fresh take on one of William Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies, this acclaimed production sets the romantic rivalry against the backdrop of the legendary family-run Hotel Messina on the Italian Riviera, a site that has been visited by artists, celebrities, and royals. But when the owner’s daughter weds a dashing young soldier, not all guests are in the mood for love. Scandalous deceptions soon surround not only the young couple, but also the adamantly single Beatrice (Katherine Parkinson) and Benedick (John Heffernan). Simon Godwin directs the comedy.
Run time: 2 hrs 30 mins

Tickets $18, $16 for members, $14 for students, and $10 for children under 15.
