Warfare in News


Posted on Wednesday 9th May

This summer, in a brand new venture, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard will present a season of productions in the exceptional surroundings of the world famous HMS Victory.

The 'Dockyard at Dusk' season will start with an outdoor production of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing on 18-21 July from the Royal Navy Theatre Association, which promises to be an amazing spectacle. Much Ado About Nothing is a witty comedy about two sets of lovers drawn from a group of young men returning home from war. The production will be brought up-to-date as the men will be a troop of Royal Marines returning from Afghanistan.

The season will also feature a production of Shakespeare's Macbeth and a performance from The Royal Marines Concert Band, on Thursday 23 and Saturday 25 August.
