As You Like It: The Lord Chamberlain's Men
Rosalind, the daughter of a banished duke, falls in love with Orlando at a wrestling match, but her usurping uncle, jealous of her popularity, banishes her from court. Disguised as a boy she seeks out her father and his friends in the Forest of Arden. Here she meets Orlando again and, under the guise of a young man, counsels him in the art of love.
With warring brothers, clowns, comic peasants, romance, death threats, escape and even a wrestling match there is something for everyone here. This is one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies containing some of his most memorable lines. Let the players whisk you away to the forest court of the exiled Duke of Arden.
Founded in 2004 and named after Shakespeare's original troupe of travelling players, The Lord Chamberlain's Men has quickly established itself as the UK's premier open-air touring theatre company.
The Lord Chamberlain's Men brings its unique blend of all male Shakespearean entertainment to only the most beautiful and historic open air venues, where the audiences can sit under the stars, sip a glass of wine and enjoy a picnic while being enthralled in true Elizabethan fashion.
The actor-musicians of the company follow the same principles that Shakespeare himself championed: clear, bold and dynamic storytelling in the open air, seasoned with a healthy dose of music, songs and comedy combine to make a Lord Chamberlain's Men production the perfect way to spend a summer's evening.
