University of Adelaide Theatre Guild Inc.
an outdoor production of
AS YOU LIKE IT
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Megan Dansie
“All the world’s a stage …”
… and for their 80th Anniversary Shakespeare production, the Theatre Guild is making the outdoors their stage, in Pfitzner Court.
Rosalind’s father, Duke Senior, has been deposed from his corporate empire by his scheming brother, Frederick. Orlando’s brother, Oliver, wants him killed. The Duke and his followers, including the melancholy Jaques, find refuge in The Forest of Arden. Rosalind is fleeing her usurping uncle with her cousin Celia and their jester Touchstone and Orlando is escaping his murderous brother together with his faithful servant Adam.
Once in the forest, they meet a carnival of characters. Will they find themselves, their families and true love? Of course!
Come and join us for a picnic in the grounds of the University of Adelaide and enjoy one of Shakespeare’s most loved comedies.
Cast: AJ Bartley, Matilda Butler, Jean Collins, Matthew Chapman, Geoff Dawes, Christina Devetzidis, Tim Edhouse, Guy Henderson, Rebecca Kemp, Claire Langsford, Philip Lineton, Esther Michelsen, Riordan Miller-Frost and Dylan O’Donnell.
