A modern reinvention of Shakespeare's As You Like It
Directed by Shayde Sinclair.
This tale follows eight characters who journey through the Forest of Arden, in a search for love and belonging. Set in a modern day world, this production lands much closer to home and explores the themes of priviledge and gentrification in Shakespeare's brilliantly witty and warm comedy.
