About

Rosalind is banished from Court. With her best friend Celia by her side she journeys to a world of exile. But not before catching the eye of love-struck Orlando, who is also forced from the Court into the Forest.

What ensues is a riotous combination of a feisty cross-dressing heroine, a tartan-clad fool, melodic songs, questionable poetry and laughs aplenty. Will love conquer all, or is it merely a madness?

Kimberley Sykes directs this playful and passionate version of Shakespeare’s much-loved romantic comedy.

“Inventive, Playful, Captivating... A bonkers trip to the Forest of Arden” – Daily Telegraph ★★★★

“Antony Byrne is typically commanding in the roles of both fraternal Dukes” – WhatsOnStage

“In one of the production’s most enjoyable sequences, he [Sandy Grierson’s Touchstone] calls upon Tom Dawze’s bashful William to assist in his wooing of Charlotte Arrowsmith’s Audrey through British Sign Language. This three-way exchange is delightful and wittily staged” – The Stage

“The Forest of Arden has rarely felt more appealing” – The Guardian
