As You Like It

by William Shakespeare adapted by Dave Baldwin

BIHOPSWOOD HOUSE

This year's Shakespeare makes full use of the beautiful grounds of Bishopswood House. Whilst we have no woodland, the rolling lawns beneath vast old trees serve well to represent the Bard's mythical 'Forest of Arden'. This tale of the lovelorn Orlando and Rosalind sits well with our young cast and they delight in playing such a variety of roles from the City Coutiers to the mean and simple rustics of the forest. Once again we were treated to wonderful weather, perhaps the best of the summer, and an enthusiastic audience of a hundred or so followed the action around the grounds in the evening sunshine. Who says that Shakespeare is not for youngsters?
