Event description
Drum roll please…… Essential Theatre is back with their 20th anniversary season of Shakespeare in the Vines!

About this event

What better way to celebrate this enormous milestone than with a brand new production!

As You Like It brings all of Shakespeare’s best ideas together in one masterful play of love, betrayal, mischief, and foolery, and features some of the most iconic and memorable Shakespearean lines ever spoken.

“All the world’s a stage”

Rosalind has had a big day. She’s seen her first wrestling match, fallen in love with the winner - who is then banished from court - and then her jealous uncle, Duke Frederick, banishes her from court too! Disguised as a boy, she sets forth into exile with her best friend, Celia, to find her father, the former Duke, and her new love, Orlando, in the wild and wondrous Forest of Arden. Along the way, they meet a motley crew of characters and use the freedom of disguise to test the strength of “love at first sight”.

Led by experienced theatre makers Amanda LaBonte & Sophie Lampel, Essential Theatre re-interpret classic texts for modern audiences delivering vibrant and engaging productions. They strip back any preconceived ideas as to how Shakespeare “should” be presented and create productions accessible and enjoyable for all. Experience has taught them how to juggle inclement and unpredictable weather, noisy cockatoos, stray dogs and most importantly how to celebrate the brilliant words of William Shakespeare.

Food, gin and wine from over 12 Seppeltsfield Road wineries will be available from 5pm, performance from 6.30pm.

No BYO alcohol permitted.

Limited tickets and COVID safe plans will be in place according to government and venue requirements.
