For the past decade this hugely popular company have brought their own special brand of authentic, exhilarating and engaging all-male productions to the UK’s most historically important and visually stunning venues.
This play of soaring poetry, high comedy and tender love, Shakespeare’s late, great gem, examines the power of true love, our capacity for vengeance and what it takes to forgive.
Peter Stickney, Artistic Director, says, ‘I can’t think of anything more perfect for a summer’s evening than a classical retelling of this great play set against the background of one of the nation’s most beautiful outdoor venues.’
Bring a chair and a picnic, and spend a glorious evening watching this enchanting, fast-paced production of one of Shakespeare’s finest plays.
Founded in 2004, The Lord Chamberlain’s Men Theatre Company is the modern incarnation of Shakespeare’s original troupe of the same name. This is the perfect opportunity to see Shakespeare’s play performed as it would have been; in the open air, in full Elizabethan costume with an all-male cast.
Gates open at 6.30pm for a 7.30pm start, don't forget your picnic! Please bring low backed chairs/rug, warm clothes and a torch. Hot drinks and ice cream will be available.
