As You Like It – The Lord Chamberlain’s Men
31 August @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Shelter invite you to join them at Claremont Farm this summer for a performance of the sparkling Shakespeare comedy, As You Like It.
Experience this great play as Shakespeare first saw it performed – in the open air, by an all male cast and with Elizabethan costumes, music and dance. The Lord Chamberlain’s Men – with a history stretching back to William Shakespeare himself – are one of the UK’s finest touring theatre companies.
“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 prepare to be entertained and transported.
Food and a cash bar are available on site at Claremont Farm.
Book early to avoid missing out!
