A pleasant way to spend a late spring evening, watching Shakespeare performed in the open air! The theatre Guild’s production of As You Like It works well in the amphitheatre-like space that is Pfitzner Court at the uni.
Tackling Shakespeare is not for the faint hearted. His comedies are well loved, his tragedies well known and his histories often avoided. Richard III has been grouped with the histories and also classed a tragedy, because it is a little of both. Let’s face it - lots of people die!
This is a nicely stylish piece with a wickedly witty script, There are plenty of laughs to be had in this clever production.
