CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
Written around 1600 and set in two contrasting communities; city and forest. Rosalind and Celia have been banished from Court. In fear of their lives, they disguise themselves and seek sanctuary in the Forest of Arden. Amongst the magical and ancient boughs, Rosalind discovers her exiled father, uncovers various truths about herself and others...and falls helplessly in love. But in this earthly paradise nothing is quite what it seems: men do not always act like men, and women can be anything at all...Uplifting, awe-inspiring and immense fun, Shakespeare's wondrous comedy is a joyous celebration of the liberating power of love and the redeeming spirit of nature.Performers Mariah Gale (Celia), Katy Stephens (Rosalind), Jonjo O'Neill (Orlando), Forbes Masson (Jacques), Geoffrey Freshwater, Sandy Neilson, James Tucker, Richard Katz (Touchstone), Clarence Smith, Peter Shorey, David Carr, Dyfan Dwyfor, Christine Entwisle, James Howard, Ansu Kabia, Debbie Korley, Dharmesh Patel, Peter Peverley, Sophie Russell, James Traherne.
