As You Like It immersive production announced at The Savill Garden

Date Posted: 09/02/2016

This summer, drama company Watch Your Head returns to host Shakespeare’s As You Like It as an immersive experience at The Savill Garden.

The production will run from 22nd June until 24th July, taking place in hidden gardens and landscaped lawns at The Savill Garden.

As You Like It will feature circus tricks, choreographed dance and live music as part of the experience.

Shakespeare’s classic play tells the story of Rosalind and Orlando who are forced into exile by their families and so venture into the Forest of Arden. Here, they are faced with The Golden Age, a travelling circus. Rosalind disguises herself as a boy to embark on a new way of living and a journey of love lessons and trickery.

The comedy of love and change challenges conventional ideas of love and lust, creating a setting where audiences can participate and lose themselves in the production.

The experience will conclude with a triple wedding, where groups are encouraged to come together in a celebration and indulge in food and drink from local suppliers.

A BBQ will be served during the final wedding scene, and drinks will be available to purchase from a hidden bush bar, which will pop up throughout the play.
