CONTEST: MUCH ADO ABOUT FREE TICKETS!

Win tickets to Bard on the Beach’s “Much Ado About Nothing.”

Bard on the Beach, our favourite seaside Shakespeare festival, is back for its 28th summer of reinterpreting a series of brilliant plays you haven’t re-read since high school.

First up under the False Creek tents is Much Ado About Nothing, a comedy about several sets of mismatched lovers sharing a villa in Italy. The director’s modern twist: It’s set in 1959 — the era of Fellini and Rossellini, Marcello Mastroianni and Sophia Loren — and a group of actors and filmmakers are celebrating the wrap of their latest movie.

Young Hero and Claudio are boring and basic, but in love. Meanwhile, film star Beatrice is a bitch, and leading man Benedick lives up to the second syllable in his name. The lovers are crossed and double-crossed and crossed back again with hilariously unintended consequences.

And one lucky PINQ.ca subscriber is going to win two tickets for the date of their choice.*

Now that’s living la dolce vita!

To win tickets to Much Ado About Nothing (*excluding special events), email us at contest@pinq.ca by midnight. We’ll contact the winner via email. And, as always, you must be a PINQ subscriber to win! If you don’t win, check out the ticket info below!
