As You Like It

£10 - £59.50

Rosalind is banished, and with her best friend Celia by her side, she journeys into exile. But not before catching the eye of love-struck Orlando, who is also forced from The Court into the dappled Forest of Arden. What ensures is a riotous combination of a feisty cross-dressing heroine, a tartan-clad fool, melodic songs and laugh aplenty.

Blending physical comedy, music, storytelling and puppetry, this playful As You Like It brings the audience right to the heart of the action and is a celebration of theatre itself.
