Much Ado About Nothing is a saucy and razor-sharp battle of wits between the bickering Beatrice and Benedick, who wield words as weapons, their banter betraying their love for each other.
Directed by Bell Shakespeare’s Associate Director, James Evans (Julius Caesar) and starring Zindzi Okenyo (Antony and Cleopatra, MTC’s An Ideal Husband) as Beatrice, this Much Ado About Nothing will be a powerful exploration of the struggle for identity and self-knowledge in a male-dominated world. The pursuit of love is framed in a social context that enhances the darker themes in this timeless comic gem.

Point Puer Boys’ Prison is located on a peninsula next to Port Arthur prison in Tasmania. Established in 1834, it was the first of its kind for the British Empire and an experiment that aimed to rehabilitate young offenders. On opening, there were 68 boys aged from 10 - 20. The boys were given some opportunities to learn a trade, read and write. But, this was sporadic and depended on the skills and attitudes of the guards, many of whom were once prisoners at Port Arthur. Living conditions were rough and punishments were often brutal.
