The director of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Love’s Labour’s Won talks to the RSC’s Nicky Cox about why the company decided to rename the play usually known as Much Ado About Nothing. He explains how he cast actors to play the principal roles, and discusses changing the setting of the play from Italy to 20th-century Warwickshire. Recorded in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, 13 October 2014.

This was a great opportunity to look at the plays in a new light.
