As You Like It                      
Rarely performed in his lifetime, this play has become one of Shakespeare´s most accessible and enjoyable comedies. Rooted in Elizabethan culture yet with its finger on the pulse of the future, it follows its heroine Rosalind as she flees persecution in her uncle's court, accompanied by her cousin Celia and Touchstone the court jester, to find safety and eventually love, in the Forest of Arden. With a cross-dressing heroine, gender games and sexual ambivalence this play will always appeal to modern audiences.
 
Alice in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass                
It’s not every day that one meets a smartly-dressed white rabbit, let alone one that talks. It’s not everyone that would follow that rabbit down a nearby rabbit hole and fall into Wonderland, but Alice does just that and so enters Lewis Carroll’s fantasy world of the Cheshire Cat, the Duchess, the Queen of Hearts and the Mad Hatter, to say nothing of the equally strange world through the Looking Glass, where Alice encounters the Red and White Queens, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the gentle White Knight and fearsome Jabberwock.
Join Alice in her adventures, brought to the stage in Adrian Mitchell’s adaptation of these enchanting tales.
 
The Taming of the Shrew
The Taming of the Shrew is one of the most popular of Shakespeare’s comedies and was the inspiration for Cole Porter’s great musical “Kiss Me Kate”.Petruchio arrives in Padua looking for a wife. His friend, Hortensio, knows of a rich man, Baptista, who is looking to marry off his elder daughter, Katherine, but he hesitates to recommend her to his friend A SHREW! Petruchio likes the challenge and thinks he can tame her. Baptista won’t allow his younger daughter, the pretty Bianca, to marry until he finds a husband for Kate. He favours a rich old man, but this doesn’t stop two young lovers from trying to win her, disguised as a schoolteacher and a musician. And so the story begins! This lively production, full of fun and music, is set in 1950s Italy, when young women were starting to question their conventional roles, when Gina Lollobrigida and Sophia Loren were becoming movie icons and when Dean Martin was singing “That’s Amore!”.
