All the world really is a stage in Kimberley Sykes’ playful and imaginative take on Shakespeare’s romantic comedy.
Rosalind is banished, and with her best friend Celia by her side, she journeys to a world of exile. But not before catching the eye of love-struck Orlando, who is also forced from the Court into the Forest…
Blending physical comedy, music and storytelling, this As You Like It dares you to change your state of mind.
‘Inventive, playful, captivating… a bonkers trip to the Forest of Arden’ **** Daily Telegraph
'As You Like It' is one of my favourite Shakespeare plays so I booked for myself, my son and his girlfriend. We all loved it! The performance was lively yet thought provoking. The casting and direction was excellent.
I absolutely loved this production: a clever mix of classic setting and modern reinvention, stellar performances, fantastic music, and an incredible set. Just really clever and original. Totally brought the play to life, hilarious! Would 100% recommend. :)
Absolutely brilliant and funny.. The actress playing Rosalyn absolutely fantastic very talented young actress ..
