As You Like It. One of the UK’s finest touring theatre companies present this great play as Shakespeare first saw it performed - in the open air, by an all male cast and with Elizabethan costumes, music and dance.

Separately, Rosalind and her dear friend Celia, the noble Orlando, and the usurped Duke Senior and his courtiers get banished and set up new lives in the Forest of Arden. Free from the constraints of their former lives lovers tussle, wits and fools spar, familial bonds are challenged, and everyone wrestles with what it really means to be yourself. “The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.”

In exile they become exultant as true love and true identity is found in the forest. This rustic romp packed with music, laughs, cross-dressing confusion and a dash of wrestling will keep you smiling to the last.

Please arrive at the main, north gates entrance in Holkham village and you will be directed to the walled garden to park. Parking is included in your tickets. Gates open at 5.30pm. The performance will take place outside, whatever the weather, so please dress appropriately. You are very welcome to bring a picnic and please also bring your own low-backed seating or rugs with you. We are sorry but umbrellas are not permitted unless you are seated in the back row and dogs other than assistance dogs are not permitted. Please do not leave your dog in your car. The performance lasts approximately 2hrs, including an interval.
