The Lord Chamberlain’s Men present AS YOU LIKE IT by William Shakespeare
Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control The Lord Chamberlain’s Men have had to cancel the remaining dates of the tour of As You Like It, including their visit to Lincoln. We have confirmed a date for next year for a new production of Romeo & Juliet, which you can book here. Any existing ticket holders for As You Like It are asked to contact The Drill box office for an exchange to Romeo & Juliet or a refund.
“All the world’s a stage!”
The Lord Chamberlain’s Men – with a history stretching back to William Shakespeare himself – invite you to join them this summer in the grounds of International Bomber Command Centre for the sparkling comedy, 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. Bring a chair and a picnic and prepare to be entertained.
ABOUT THE PLAY
“Love is merely a madness!”
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.
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.
“The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.”
The Drill has teamed up with the team at the IBCC to offer an exclusive number of pre-show meals in their restaurant from 5.30pm at £26.50 per head.
You can order online with your booking. Each menu starts with a selection of Home Baked Breads with Flavoured Butters and Olives and then a choice of two mains and three desserts.
Book early to avoid missing out!
There will also be a BBQ available.
