The world’s first cycling theatre company, The HandleBards, pedal from venue to venue with all the set, props and costume necessary to perform environmentally sustainable Shakespeare across the globe.
Join their all-female troupe in the beautiful gardens at Raby Castle for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s ‘As You Like It’ like none other. In usual HandleBards style, expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter.
And what’s the play about? Well - Rosalind and Orlando have been forced into exile in the Forest of Arden. As lovers, they become entangled in a bizarre game of lust, love and mistaken identity.
Please bring your own seating/rug & warm clothes. Picnics welcome.
Gates open: at 5.30pm, performance begins at 6.30pm
Running time: 2 hours including interval
Age suitability: suitable for all ages, but recommended for ages 5+.
