The RSC has released this promotional trailer for one the plays being performed at its World Shakespeare Festival. This performance contains an all-Indian cast with a twist on the traditional Much Ado About Nothing play.
Meera Syal, from “Goodness Gracious Me” and “The Kumars at No 42”, plays a key role in this take on Much Ado About Nothing, bringing publicity to the performance. Her presence and the long-established success of the RSC will increase the viewership of this video and the performance.
The video is also well filmed, helping to create a successful promotional video. Using orange lighting gels and close-up shots, this video is warm, personal and intriguing, giving the phrase “an Indian Summer” another meaning.
