Dave chats with Director Ellen Roe director and Performer Jack Lark about Shakespeare In The Gardens this year As you like it a play about love at first sight coming to the RTBG in February.
The RTBG will come alive in one of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies, Dukes and their daughters, comely maidens, a shepherd and a clown play out their courtly games in the rustic beauty of the Forest of Arden.
“As You Like It” –Jan 31 – Feb 28 2020 is a play about love at first sight, and we like it. Rosalind is banished from her uncle’s court, disguises herself as a man and hides out in the Forest of Arden. There with her cousin Celia and Touchstone the court jester, love runs riot but all the mismatches, cross dressing and fighting all turns out ok in the end – just as we like it!
This show is suitable for all who love the poetry and prose of Shakespeare and have ever fallen in love.
