Following on from their successful Shakespeare productions of previous years, Folksy Theatre present their own interpretation of As You Like It. Rosalind, the daughter of a banished duke, falls in love with Orlando. When she is then banished from the court by her usurping uncle, Rosalind takes on the appearance of a boy, and together with her cousin Celia and jester Touchstone, travels to the Forest of Arden, where her father and his friends live in exile. Will Rosalind ever marry her Orlando? Will the Duke change his ways?
This wonderful Shakespeare comedy about life, love, betrayal, faith and
death is filled with Folksy’s touch of bold characters, audience interaction and plenty of laughs. This is a perfect tribute to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.
This year pre-theatre refreshments will be available or you can create your own picnic in The Old School Room at the Lyceum, adjacent
to the Dell itself, with catering by Port Sunlight Museum Tea Room.
