The Lord Chamberlain’s Men - with a history stretching back to William Shakespeare himself - invite you to join them this

“Love is merely a madness!”
Separately, Rosalind and her dear friend Celia, the noble Orlando, and the usurped Duke Senior and his courtiers get banished and set up new lives in the Forest of Arden. Free from the constraints of their former lives lovers tussle, wits and fools spar, familial bonds are challenged, and everyone wrestles with what it really means to be yourself.
“The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.”
In exile they become exultant as true love and true identity is found in the forest. This rustic romp packed with music, laughs, cross-dressing confusion and a dash of wrestling will keep you smiling to the last.
“All the world’s a stage!”
Bring a chair and a picnic and prepare to be entertained and transported. Book early to avoid missing out!
