As You Like It @ Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

August 10, 2017 @ 6:30 pm

|Recurring Show (See all)

An event every day that begins at 6:30pm, repeating until August 13, 2017

This performance is a part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and tickets can be bought by calling 0131 226 0000 or visiting https://tickets.edfringe.com

Join the HandleBards’ all-female troupe in the beautiful Botanics for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s ‘As You Like It’ like no other.

And what’s the play about? Well – Rosalind and Orlando have been forced into exile in the Forest of Arden. As lovers, they become entangled in a bizarre game of lust, love and mistaken identity.

In usual HandleBards style, expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter.

Notes on Performance

  • The performance will begin at 6:45pm, but we suggest arriving around 15 minutes earlier to ensure you have plenty of time to get to the performance venue. Entry to the Botanics is via the West Gate only.
  • Chairs, picnics, blankets and any other low level accessories are welcome.
  • In case of rain, please don’t bring umbrellas as they block sight-lines for other audience members. Ponchos and raincoats are just as fetching anyway, so please wear these instead!
  • Refreshments will be available from the café.
