The Lord Chamberlain’s Men, a company with a history stretching back to William Shakespeare himself, present an outdoor performance of the sparkling comedy, As You Like It.

Following last year’s hugely successful tour of Macbeth, The Lord Chamberlain’s Men, leading proponents of open air theatre for more than 15 years, return with a joyous and celebratory production of Shakespeare’s As You Like It. They are visiting Peterborough as part of their national tour with the show.

Audiences are encouraged to bring a chair, a picnic and a glass of something chilled as the show promises to be another authentic, excellent and magical treat.

Acclaimed for their stylish and accessible productions The Lord Chamberlain’s Men have been wowing audiences throughout the country and internationally in their trademark style since 2004. Continually raising the bar for standards in open air theatre they have gone from strength to strength.

Peter Stickney, Artistic Director and Producer says:

“As You Like It is a wonderfully warm, funny and rich play. We follow our main characters as they flee or are exiled from the court to set up new lives in the Forest of Arden. There they find love, freedom and, ultimately, happiness. There is clearly much to be said for running away to the countryside and starting again! There will be plenty of songs and laughs, some classic Shakespearean cross-dressing confusion and a spot of wrestling."

This open air production is ‘See it Safely’ compliant and will adhere to government and industry COVID safety guidance, ensuring every effort is made to protect audiences and company members at all times.


Tickets are £17 for adults, or £10 for children + booking fee. 
Gates open at 6.00pm.
