CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
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 Rupert Ward Lewis (Orlando), Eric Jay (Adam), Alex MacLaren (Oliver), Dan Winter (Dennis), Tom Sherman (Charles), Rebecca Smart (Celia), Saskia Portway (Rosalind), David Plimmer (Touchstone), Jamie Ballard (Le Beau), Peter Clifford (Frederick), Mark Hesketh (Palace Lord), John Nicholas (Duke Senior), Jonathan Nibbs (Amiens), Dan Winter (1st Forest Lord), Tom Sherman (2nd Forest Lord), Mark Hesketh (3rd Forest Lord), Paul Nicholson (Corin), Joseph Mawle (Silvius), John Mackay (Jaques), Lisa Kay (Audrey), Amanda Horlock (Phebe), Peter Clifford (Sir Oliver Martext), Jamie Ballard (William), Tom Sherman (Jaques de Boys).
