Love’s Labour’s Lost and Love’s Labour’s Won (also known as Much Ado About Nothing) will play as a double-bill.

Both plays will be directed by Christopher Luscombe, broadcast live to cinemas and streamed free to schools.

Both productions will share a setting based on a splendid country house just before and just after the First World War. Edward Bennett and Michelle Terry will play the lovers in both productions.

I’m going to write one anyway. But this one is terrific.

Currently researching Richard III for a article I’m working on, and I came across these two photos. So Richard III is really just an early Two Face?
