All the world really is a stage in this joyous and imaginative version of Shakespeare's madcap romantic comedy directed by Kimberley Sykes.
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 court into the dappled Forest of Arden.
What ensues is a riotous combination of a feisty cross-dressing heroine, a tartan-clad fool, melodic songs and laughs 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.

Performance days & times
Thu 5 Dec, 1.15pm
A chilled performance takes a more casual approach to noise and movement in the auditorium, but the performance itself is unchanged.
This performance is ideal for people who feel more at ease knowing they can go in and out of the auditorium during the show including people with dementia. This performance is for everybody and babes in arms are welcome, (not walking or requiring their own seat).
