It may be a new year and a new decade, but Delamere Vineyards is continuing a well-loved tradition. This year Delamere will once again host Directions Theatre Company as they perform one of William Shakespeare’s great comedy works; As You Like It.
The Vineyard will come alive with Dukes and their daughters, comely maidens, a shepherd and a clown, as they play out their courtly games in the rustic beauty of the Forest of Arden.
“As You Like It” – is a play about love at first sight, and we like it. Rosalind is banished from her uncle’s court, disguises herself as a man and hides out in the Forest of Arden. There with her cousin Celia and Touchstone the court jester, love runs riot but all the mismatches, cross dressing and fighting turns out ok in the end – just as we like it!
This show is suitable for all who love the poetry and prose of Shakespeare, and anyone who has ever fallen in love.
“As You Like It” is directed by Ellen Roe and features the talents of local actors Natalie Venettacci (as Orlando), Anna Kidd (as Rosalind) Emma Skalicky (as Celia), Noah Casey (as Jaques), Simone Dobber (as Touchstone), and Jack Lark, Andy Aisbett, Jared Goldsmith, Paul McNally and Tai Gardner.
“All the worlds a stage, and all the men and women merely players; they all have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts….” - As You Like It, Act II Scene vii
