It’s the orig­i­nal ro­man­tic com­edy and the tem­plate of this Shake­speare play set a prece­dent fol­lowed in rom-coms for cen­turies. Queens­land The­atre Com­pany is mark­ing the 400th an­niver­sary of the Bard’s death in style with this pro­duc­tion directed by Shake­speare afi­cionado Ja­son Klar­wein and star­ring sev­eral of our finest thes­pi­ans, in­clud­ing Chris­ten O’Leary, Tama Mathe­son, Hugh Parker and Bryan Pro­bets.
