We are exploring comic conventions through studying an adaptation of Shakespeare's 'Much Ado About Nothing". We will explore language features such as puns, metaphors, similes, allusions. We will also discuss ideas on characterisation and how writers use convention to target an audience and purpose.

We will also use excerpts from modern comedy to illustrate how these features are used for similar purpose for a modern audience.
