Following the success of their inaugural outdoor Shakespeare production last July, Marmalade Theatre is back with another production in the grounds of a country house in St Albans.

Marmalade Theatre, the brainchild of well-known local actress Sue Dyson, put on A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the home of her friends Bob and Wendy May of Hog End Farm, Hogg End Lane, last year and was able to make a sizeable donation to two charities as a result.

Now it is putting on six performances of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing at the same location - and this time the two charities set to benefit are Rennie Grove Hospice Care and the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation.

Shakespeare’s classic tale of love, intrigue and deception is being performed from next Thursday, June 25, until Saturday, June 27, and again from Thursday, July 2, until Saturday, July 4.

Gates open at 6pm and performances start at 8pm. For further information and to purchase tickets go to
