WILLIAM Shakespeare’s As You Like It is a lighthearted tale of love, deceit, position and the trials and tribulations that naturally follow.

Royal Scots Club’s Hepburn Suit

Our heroine Rosalind is on the run from her uncle, the current duke, searching for love and desperate to avoid persecution.

Disguised as a local male shepherd, Rosalind tests Orlando’s love for her, all the while entangling herself in an awkward love triangle.

This production by Arkle Theatre Company feels incredibly at home in the Royal Scots Club’s Hepburn Suit.

With its lavish interiors and traditional stage space it gives the impression that this may well have been how the play was originally intended to be performed.

With a talented cast that have a clear understanding of Shakespearian humor, the piece is ideal for those looking to see something enjoyable but not too hard hitting.

A must for Shakespeare-loving Fringe-goers.
