The production will feature designs by Rob Jones with lighting by Peter Mumford, music by Michael Bruce and sound by Emma Laxton. 

"Two young lovers, Claudio and Hero, are to be married imminently but the devious scheming of a resentful Prince looks set to thwart the nuptials," according to press notes. "Meanwhile, marriage seems inconceivable for reluctant lovers Beatrice (Catherine Tate) and Benedick (David Tennant) whose endless witty sparring threatens to keep them apart forever."

The comedy will be presented in the West End by Sonia Friedman Productions.
