Shakespeare's giddy comedy of love and mistaken identity

AS YOU LIKE IT

performed by The Handlebards

Four young ladies who specialise in Shakespeare, and tour on their bikes!

Uproariously funny Sir Ian McKellen
Gloriously eccentric and very, very funny - The Stage
Unbelievably impressivemy face ached from laughter - Sunderland Echo

As You Like It is one of Shakespeare's tenderest and most hilarious comedies, featuring one of his feistiest heroines, Rosalind. Total confusion reigns as all the characters, for different reasons, find themselves lost in the Forest Of Arden. All ends happily (of course!), with glorious moments of mistaken identity and physical comedy.
It also features one of Shakespeare's most iconic speeches: 'All the world's stage...'. A magical evening of sublime comedy in the grounds of the castle (if wet in the Great Chamber)

Pre-booked picnics are available (details online shortly). Members of the audience who arrive on their bicycles will get a free drink to recover!
