As You Like It - Trentham Estate

August 10, 2024 - August 11, 2024

As You Like It

Experience this fantastic performance unfold with the broadest humour brought to you by Duke’s Theatre Company with an unparalleled energetic cast, original music and innovative production design. Performed live out in the open in the beautiful setting of the Church Flats within Trentham’s Italian Gardens on a specially designed travelling set, you’ll experience this story in a way you may never have before!

“…look into happiness through another man’s eyes!” The ancient Forest of Arden serves as the backdrop for Shakespeare’s most famous and quotable comedy. When Rosalind is banished from Duke Ferdinand’s court, new identities are explored with hilarious consequences. Music, mayhem and madness thrill as we are shown that “All the world’s a stage”. 

Back for a fourth Summer Season, The Duke’s Theatre Co follow their acclaimed tours of Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Twelfth Night. Kevin Bennett, (Shakespeare’s Globe, Shaw Festival, Ontario) directs this brand-new tour that will visit fifty of the UK’s most magical venues including The Minack, Wilton’s Music Hall and Hever Castle. This As You Like It will live on in your memory “forever and a day”.
