Storytelling show 'A Muddle in Messina' (aged 4 to 11)

About the event

A Muddle in Messina
By Sophia Hatfield
A Filament Project in association with Stute Theatre and Northern Broadsides

It is the end of World War Two and the soldiers are returning home. Avant-garde bard Balthasar is eager to join the celebrations, but his band mates, Beatrice and Benedick, are not getting on. Can Balthasar devise a plan to reunite the divided pair, or will his dreams of the band playing be spoilt by their arguments?

‘A Muddle in Messina’ is a brand new storytelling show, created in association with world-renowned theatre company Northern Broadsides. Suitable for children aged 4-11, this entertaining introduction will bring ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ to life for young and family audiences.

The performance will last around 45 minutes. Join us after the performance for a stay and play session with the company, and an opportunity to explore the interactive map of Messina further.
