As You Like It at Raglan Castle

    NP15 2BT
The Lord Chamberlain's Men return to Raglan Castle after an absence of two years with their celebratory and joyous production of As You Like It!

The Lord Chamberlain's Men - with a history stretching back to William Shakespeare himself - invite you to join them this summer for the sparkling comedy, As You Like It. One of the UK's finest touring theatre companies present this great play as Shakespeare first saw it performed - in the open air, by an all male cast and with Elizabethan costumes, music and dance.

"Love is merely a madness!"

Separately, Rosalind and her dear friend Celia, the noble Orlando, and the usurped Duke Senior and his courtiers get banished and set up new lives in the Forest of Arden. Free from the constraints of their former lives lovers tussle, wits and fools spar, familial bonds are challenged, and everyone wrestles with what it really means to be yourself.

"The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool."

In exile they become exultant as true love and true identity is found in the forest. This rustic romp packed with music, laughs, cross-dressing confusion and a dash of wrestling will keep you smiling to the last.

"All the world's a stage!"

Bring a chair and a picnic and prepare to be entertained and transported. Book early to avoid missing out!
