For anyone thinking “O, how full of briars is this working-day world!”, Essential Theatre brings reprieve with a new production of As You Like It.
Curtains open on this newest Shakespeare in the Garden performance from 6.30pm on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 March. While it may be true that “all the world’s a stage”, there’s none better for plein-air performance than the shire’s most popular venue, the Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Garden.
Garden manager Michael Anlezark said As You Like It featured some of Shakespeare’s most memorable lines.
“It’s a play about betrayal, love, mischief and foolery,” he said.
“There’s a villainous brother, a cross-dressing heroine, with love as the central theme. Of course, it all comes right by the end.
“So pack your picnic, blanket and a bottle of plonk. Gates open from 5.30pm.”
