Shakespeare’s ‘As You Like It’

9th August from 7 pm (doors open at 6 pm so you can enjoy the gardens)

Presented by Folksytheatre, is this wonderful Shakespearian comedy about life, love, betrayal and faith. Filled with Folksy’s touch of live music, bold characters, audience interaction and plenty of laughs. Bring along your picnics and friends and family to enjoy this fun-filled production!

Rosalind, the daughter of a banished duke, falls in love with Orlando. When she is then banished from the court by her usurping uncle, Rosalind takes on the appearance of a boy, calling herself Ganymede. She, her cousin Celia and jester Touchstone, travel to the Forest of Arden, where her father and his friends live in exile. When she meets Orlando again in the forest, she devises an elaborate scheme to find out the verity of his supposed passion for her, and to further capture his heart, through the witty and mischievous façade of Ganymede.

“An assured and enjoyable production with talented actors, clever direction and a refreshing realisation of the popular play… Lovely audience interaction and a hilarious entrance… Brilliantly funny”

Ticket price guide: £48.00 for a family / £15.00 Adult / £12.00 child
