Shakespeare’s As You Like It
Suitable from age 4+
About the performance
The Three Inch Fools are back and rushed off their feet performing one of Shakespeare’s most chaotic comedies. With musical instruments in hand, our hapless troupe of actors hit the road with a production of endless costume changes and confusion.
Join us this summer, across the UK, as The Fools take on Shakespeare’s story of rustic revelry in the Forest of Arden. Rosalind and Celia are on the run, Orlando is practising his passionate yet pathetic attempts at poetry, and a cohort of boisterous lords are rubbing shoulders with a company of country bumpkins. Taking on far too many characters between them, we present three exhausted actors trying to pull off this impossible feat. As Shakespeare so famously said: love is merely a madness, and so is this production.
