‘All the world’s a stage.’
‘The fool thinks he is wise, the wise man knows himself to be a fool.’
‘Love is merely a madness.’
As far as quotable sayings go, Shakespeare’s As You Like It is brimming with them. And if that wasn’t enough, it also contains a comedy love story, band of forest exiles, and even a wild, rampaging lioness.
If all this sounds exciting to you, then experience a modern take on a classic play with today’s Big Deal on a ticket to Bard in the Botanics.

Last year’s Bard in the Botanics audience had plenty of positive things to say on the festival’s Facebook page. Here are a few comments, shortened for length:
‘Completely captivating. A very timely production, an amazing cast and wonderfully performed… Thank you.’
‘Not the first time at a Bard in the Botanics production and certainly won’t be my last – laughing one minute and close to tears the next. I’m sure The Bard would be proud!’
‘I only discovered Bard in the Botanics three years ago but I’m so glad I did. Looking forward to the rest of this years performances…’
