The ever popular Rain or Shine Theatre company return to the lido again with Shakespeare's great comic romance.
…Duke Senior overthrown in coup d’etat by Duke Frederick… the former is banished and flees with his supporters to the Forest of Arden…
…Celebratory games for Frederick are arranged, including the court’s favourite, wrestling; Charles the wrestler will take on all challengers…
…One of these is Orlando, son of a man loyal to the usurped Duke; attending the wrestling will be the usurper’s daughter, Celia, and niece, Rosalind – daughter of the old Duke, and someone Frederick does not trust…
…Could further banishments be on the cards? Who will triumph in the wrestling? Will either of the ladies fall for the victor? Will ladies dress as men… or vice versa? Will Rain or Shine present an evening of fun and mirth ‘as you like it’?
You already know the answers! For being Shakespeare’s great comic romance, after much trial and tribulation, love will be found, right will prevail and the Forest of Arden will be the place where all will be revealed!
