SHAKESPEARE'S MOST MUSICAL AND MUCH-LOVED COMEDY

In a court where executive powers are running rampant and brute strength is championed over basic human decency, the high-spirited Rosalind, her devoted cousin Celia and drag queen Touchstone are no longer welcome.

Exiled to the forest they encounter outlaws, the changing seasons and life unconfined by rigid codes. This leads to endless possibilities where all the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players. Gender roles dissolve and assumptions are turned on their head in this celebration of the transformative power of love and the natural world.

In their 30th anniversary production, Northern Broadsides bring their bold, refreshing style to Shakespeare’s most musical and much-loved comedy for the very first time, with a diverse cast of 12 fabulous Northern actors taking to the road in a production by Laurie Sansom which captures the sheer joy of live performance and the crazy power of love to change the world.
