About The Lord Chamberlain’s Men: As You Like It

The Lord Chamberlain’s Men – the all-male company with a history stretching back to William Shakespeare himself – invite you to join them this summer for the sparkling comedy, As You Like It, at Waddesdon Manor.

One of the UK’s finest touring theatre companies presents 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.

“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.

“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.

“All the world’s a stage!”

Bring a chair and a picnic and prepare to be entertained and transported. Book early to avoid missing out!

Reviews

“Fringe Review – Must See Show” —Brighton Festival

“Director Peter Stickney’s take on As You Like It with a seven-strong troupe is refreshing, often very funny and faithful.”

“What’s so good about TLCM is their mix of faithfulness and clarity with a fun vibe that never indulges.”

“This is a sparkling, delightful, vernally authentic As You Like It. Pure holiday humour. For all outdoor markets, I’d buy this.”
