A playful interpretation of Shakespeare’s much-loved pastoral comedy, this year’s Bard in the Yard summer production by the Butterfly Creek Theatre Troupe gives As You Like It a contemporary New Zealand political twist.

Comic boundaries are explored in a variety of new ways - costuming, the theatricality of a wrestling match and using karaoke music; while Shakespeare’s exploration of gender identity/fluidity is extended with of one of the play’s wooing couples being of the same sex.

Directed by Anne Manchester, produced by John Marwick.

Tickets are available from Rona Gallery, Eastbourne as well as online at
Dress warmly to suit the conditions. If wet, the play will be performed inside the school hall.
