ROMANCE, scuffles and comedy is filling a Brasenose College quad with a production of Much Ado About Nothing.

Students from the college are performing the Shakespeare play as part of a college arts week.

First year student Hannah Marsters, 18, has taken on the feisty role of Beatrice and said: “It’s a great part to play because she has a soft side, as well as her famous wit.

“There’s a level of vulnerability to her character which has been really interesting to explore in rehearsal and get across in performance.”

Also in the cast is Max Leak, 20, who plays Benedick.

The second year Spanish and Portuguese student said: “Rehearsals have been brilliant fun – we’ve brought everything together in a very short length of time, so everything still feels very fresh.”

The last performance is tomorrow at 2pm.
