by -

Rose Theatre Kingston in London has announced that Mel Giedroyc is to star in its production of Much Ado About Nothing, which will mark the theatre’s 10th anniversary.

Giedroyc is reuniting with Simon Dormandy, who directed her in Luce at Southwark Playhouse in 2016, and will play Beatrice in the Shakespeare play.

Further casting is to be announced.

The production previews from April 13 and will run until May 6.

Jerry Gunn, executive producer of Rose Theatre Kingston, said: “I’m very excited to see Mel put her stamp on the role, and it is entirely fitting to have such a popular actress and performer playing Beatrice, something that would have enchanted our founding artistic director Peter Hall.”

Rose Theatre Kingston is co-producing the play with Granville and Parham Productions and Antic Face.
