Report

Author: Brenda Gower

EODS are so fortunate to have the lovely Italian Gardens in which to use their consummate performing skills during the summer and Shakespeare's plays are ideally suited to this type of venue. Beatrice and Benedick are the ideal couple on which to base this romantic comedy and David Nicholles and Becky Robinson certainly brought these characters to life. The rest of the cast were all ideally suited to their parts, especially Nick Moon as Dogberry - hilarity knew no bounds at his appearance! The simple set was ideal for the garden and sound lighting, costumes and all the work that goes on backstage made for a memorable performance.
