A timeless story of chance encounters.
Following triumphant performances of Pericles at the National Theatre in summer 2018, the next Public Acts production, a musical adaptation of As You Like It, heads to Hornchurch.
Forced from their homes, Orlando, Duke Senior, his daughter Rosalind and niece Ceila, escape to the Forest of Arden, a fantastical place where all are welcomed and embraced.
Lost amidst the trees, they find community and acceptance under the stars …
This UK premiere sees more than one hundred community members, professional actors, and performance groups from across London, come together for this magical tale of faithful friends, feuding families and lovers in disguise.
With a score ranging from calypso to pop, Broadway to soul, fall under love's spell for a landmark moment in the history of Queen's Theatre Hornchurch and London's summer theatre for 2019, not to be missed!
