Not True, But Useful
Series 3, Episode 7:
Much Ado About Nothing

Episode Home | Podcast Home | Episodes

Declan and Nick take a deep dive into one of Shakespeare’s best loved comedies, Much Ado About Nothing. They join Lucie to discuss the darkness beneath the play’s lightness, the horror and dread in Beatrice and Benedick’s love story, and how it has become the blueprint for many modern romcoms.

The music in this episode was composed by Paddy Cunneen for The Winter’s Tale (2016-17)
