Outdoor Theatre: As You Like It

Shakespeare’s ultimate romantic comedy, performed outdoors on our main lawn!

Four people find their perfect soulmates in the Forest of Arden. One pair leap straight into bed, another are instantly struck by each other’s beauty, the third torment each other endlessly – while the fourth enjoy a courtship that is so witty and playful that love itself is stretched to the limit. But pitted against political intrigue, multiple disguises and overwhelming cynicism, can love win through in the end…?
