The Lord Chamberlain’s Men will be entertaining guests with their sparkling comedy, As You Like It in the gardens of Knowsley Hall this summer.
This great play will be presented as Shakespeare first saw it performed – in the open air, by an all-male cast and with Elizabethan costumes, music and dance.
Visitors are encouraged to bring a chair or rug, a picnic, a bottle of something chilled and spend a glorious summer’s evening watching this authentic production.
The performance will take place on Thursday 4th August 2022.
The Lord Chamberlain’s men have been entertaining audiences throughout the country and internationally since 2004.
Peter Stickney, Artistic Director and Producer explains what audiences can expect from this summers production:
“As You Like It is a wonderfully warm, funny and rich play. We follow our main characters as they flee or are exiled from the court to set up new lives in the Forest of Arden. There they find love, freedom and, ultimately, happiness. There is clearly much to be said for running away to the countryside and starting again! There will be plenty of songs and laughs, some classic Shakespearean cross-dressing confusion and a spot of wrestling.
In our production, as in Shakespeare’s day, there will be an extra layer of fun and intrigue as a man will be playing a woman who is dressed as a man whilst, at times, pretending to be a woman!”
