Come into the forest; dare to change your state of mind.

Rosalind is banished, wrestling with her heart and her head. With her cousin by her side, she journeys to a world of exile where barriers are broken down and all can discover their deeper selves.

Kimberley Sykes directs a riotous, exhilarating version of Shakespeare’s romantic comedy.

Direct from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, the Royal Shakespeare Company returns to the Theatre Royal with a season of exhilarating Shakespeare plays bursting with contemporary resonance.

Opening the season is Shakespeare’s dark comedy, Measure for Measure. Directed by RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran, this intense and compelling production is shockingly relevant for today. Following this, an imaginative new take on Shakespeare’s riotous comedy As You Like It, directed by Kimberley Sykes. Come on a journey of laughter, romance and self-discovery and completing the season is The Taming of The Shrew, directed by Justin Audibert, the ultimate battle of the sexes is turned on its head in a fresh portrayal of gender politics.
