Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

Bring your rug and hamper and celebrate the 26th year of Melbourne’s Shakespeare in the garden

Shakespeare Under the Stars is a different kind of theatrical experience. It's one that has its own traditions, its own attractions, its own risks and even its own audience. It is theatre which is always aiming towards something that is part carnival and part excursion; a theatre informed by the ceremonial romance of the picnic.

This year, Glenn Elston's Australian Shakespeare Company – "renowned for creating accessible family friendly productions" (Time Out) – is taking on As You Like It: one of the Bard's classic romantic comedies. Pack a picnic and see what happens when Rosalind escapes to the Forest of Arden and embarks on a journey of tangled hearts where love is disguised, unrequited, lustful and impulsive.
