Disguises, lovelorn youth and wit galore — this fast-paced classic lets us know that all the world’s a stage, and we’re merely players. With more weddings than you can throw a bouquet at, you have to ask yourself, will love conquer all or is it madness?

Rosalind has been banished by the villainous Duke Frederick. Disguised as a man, she seeks refuge in the Forest of Arden. Turns out she’s not the only one with that idea. The Forest is now home to other exiled fugitives, including the chivalrous Orlando. Cue melodic songs, questionable poetry, a wise cracking fool and buckets of laughs.

Brought to us by acclaimed Shakespearean director Damien Ryan (Taming of the Shrew) this beguiling tale twists and turns through love, lust and mistaken identity. Not to mention the shepherds... !
