The cast of professional theatre company Rain or Shine, hailed by ‘The Stage’ as ‘one of the best companies touring open air theatre’, are set to delight family audiences once again this summer with their production of Shakespeare’s cross-gartered and hilarious cross-dressing comedy As You Like It.
Join one of The Bard’s most famous heroines, Rosalind, as she makes her way in a world full of power, jealousy and tyranny. In fear for her life and in search of true love, she flees her heritage with her cousin Celia and fool Touchstone. Will disguising herself as a country lad lead her to a new life full of hope, laughter, and her banished father? With songs galore, hand-to-hand wrestling, idiotic shepherds and the infamous melancholic Jaques, this comedy is sure to delight family audiences from 6 to 96.
So pack your picnic, rugs and chairs, pop open some beer or bubbly and sit back and relax in the summer sunshine, while we whisk you off to the Forest of Arden where anything can happen!
The performance takes place in the House Garden at Sibford School, on Wednesday 19th June. The garden will open for picnics at 6.30pm and the performance will start at 7.30pm.
Tickets cost £14 for adults, £13 for concessions and £7 for children and are available online via TicketWeb.
