Quality Outdoor Shakespeare

As You Like ItCELEBRATE end of summer with touring theatre company The Festival Players at Woodchester Mansion later this month. 

Rejoicing in their 30th year on the road the players will perform Shakespeare’s As You Like It amid the atmospheric architecture of the unfinished Mansion near Stroud on 27 August.

The two hour show, that starts at 6.30 pm, promises to be the Players’ usual high energy, colourfully costumed delight. Their all-male cast of six will play multiple roles that will demand quick changes in a drama of love, betrayal and mistaken identity.

Music for As You Like It was specially written by Gloucestershire-based folk star Johnny Coppin.
