Outdoor Theatre at Powis Castle and Garden: As You Like It

Relax on a summer's evening and watch The Duke's Theatre perform 'As You Like it', a comedy play written by William Shakespeare.

  • Booking essential

Enjoy an outdoor theatre performance within the Edwardian Garden.

The ancient 'Forest of Arden' serves as the backdrop for Shakespeare’s most famous and quotable comedy. When Rosalind is banished from Duke Ferdinand’s court, new identities are explored with hilarious consequences. Music, mayhem and madness thrill as we are shown that “All the world’s a stage”.
