Shakespeare at Poltimore : As you like it

19th June 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

‘I like this place and willingly could waste my time in it’
Sun & Moon Theatre are returning to Poltimore House with a re-worked and re-imagined revival of their 2018 ‘As You Like It’, which has found new relevance as we yearn to be back outdoors and connecting with others again!

In the corporate, tech-obsessed world of the Court, the present is grinding and the future feels bleak. But when Rosalind is abruptly dismissed, she and her cousin, Celia, seize the opportunity for a fresh start, embracing the liberty of the bohemian Forest of Arden. They experience love, transformation and the thrill of empowerment, switching off, and ‘wasting’ time. This jubilant ensemble production serves as a reminder to do what you love and remember how to live!‘Delightful, charming and funny’ (RemoteGoat ☆☆☆☆)

‘Wonderfully life-affirming’ (Shakespeare Magazine)

Sun & Moon Theatre’s ‘As You Like It’ has been hailed by audiences as a ‘joyous performance’ with ‘perfectly timed humour’ that ‘brought Shakespeare to life’ and was ‘accessible to all’ – ‘One of the best Shakespeare productions we have ever seen’.

There will be a short interval where the audience can visit the cafe or have a wander in the grounds.

Standard Ticket £10
