Join STAGETEXT tomorrow night for a global watch-a-long of Much Ado About Nothing, with captions!

Posted on September 24, 2014

Our Supporter STAGETEXT recently linked up with Digital Theatre so that deaf people can watch six acclaimed plays online with captions!

To celebrate, the charity have also arranged a captioned online global watch-a-long of Much Ado About Nothing, Josie Rourke’s acclaimed production starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate.

The watch-a-long will take place tomorrow night – Thursday 25 September 2014 at 7.30pm.

People around the world can press play at the same time, and tweet along with the action.

How to watch:

From Thursday 18 September 2014, you can simply purchase Much Ado About Nothing from the Digital Theatre website, then press play on Thursday 25 September, 7.30pm (British Summer Time) and share your reactions on Twitter in real time.

Join in the conversation online using the Twitter handles @STAGETEXT @DigitalTheatre and the hashtag #MuchAdoCaptions.

More about the play:

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. Meanwhile, marriage seems inconceivable for reluctant lovers Beatrice and Benedick whose endless witty sparring threatens to keep them apart forever.
