Performed by the actors of Shakespeares Globe Theatre on an Elizabethan-style touring stage, a small troupe of travelling players breathes new life into this firm favourite among Shakespeares comedies, which runs the glorious gamut of pastoral romance: cross-dressing and love-notes; poetry and brilliant conversation; gentle satire, slapstick and passion. Rosalind, the daughter of a banished duke, falls in love with Orlando at a wrestling match, but her usurping uncle, jealous of her popularity, banishes her from court. Disguised as a boy she seeks out her father and his friends in the Forest of Arden. Here she meets Orlando again and, under the guise of a young man, counsels him in the art of love. Bring a picnic, wine, a blanket or chair and friends, and enjoy an evening of enchanting outdoor theatre. Picnic hampers can be pre-ordered in advance or bring your own.
