Event details

Sun, 06/08/2017 - 7:00pm - 10:00pm

Following the success of Much Ado about Nothing, Midsummer Nights Dream and more, critically acclaimed MadCap Theatre Productions, return to Hereford - but their first performance at Queenswood!

Dressed as a man, the exiled Rosalind is ready to begin a new life after escaping her foes in the dead of night. But, when she runs into the love-sick Orlando and joins forces with the colourful inhabitants of the Forest of Arden, who knows? Rosalind’s plans may lead to more than just her own happy ending…

Shakespeare is always made understandable and enjoyable with MadCap’s fun, fast-paced and entertaining staging that combines comedy, music, dance and physicality with the original script and a lot of MadCap 'flair'.

Bring some chairs and a picnic for an evening that is fun for the whole family and not to be missed! Refreshments will also be available at the event.


Critical Acclaim for Previous MadCap Shakespeare Productions:

A touring production to savour [... ] joyous enthusiasm which lifts the performance of a play you know so well, to another level” Remote Goat

"The way they present Shakespeare’s plays is in a way that makes it effortless to understand and that has led to them being loved equally by fans of The Bard and those who usually shy away from these centuries old classics..." Droitwich Standard

This is Shakespeare as Shakespeare intended. A joyously energetic performance full of rapid-fire wit and slapstick comedy." Daily Info, Oxford

A dream of a masterpiece and one that made for a fantastic night of entertainment” Worcester News

An evening of comedic brilliance. […] Overall, it was a wonderful evening and a wonderful performance!” MadHatter Reviews
