Rupert played Benedick (oh my heart!) in this production of Much Ado about Nothing at the Shakespeare Festival Neuss in Germany, while Rupert was filming the third season of Merlin.
- Shakespeare Festival Neuss, Germany (21-24 July 2010)
- Director: Stephen Jameson
I have also found a Facebook page for the production that includes some photos, which I’ll upload to a separate gallery page.
Interestingly, Helen Bradbury was Rupert’s Beatrice – and she also played Grace Tranfield with him in The Philanderer. Rob Heaps was Claudio – and he played Bobby with Rupert in While the Sun Shines. I have to say this sounds like perfect casting!
I also found a marvellous promotional video which includes him singing, waltzing with his Beatrice, and generally being his adorable self! However, it now seems to have vanished.
