  6. As You Like It Shakespeare’s beguiling tale of mistaken identity, pastoral comedy and love. Daughter of an exiled duke, quick-witted and popular Rosalind is banished from court by her jealous uncle. Accompanied by her devoted cousin Celia, Rosalind disguises herself as a boy and heads into the Forest of Arden. There she finds Orlando and, in the bewitching other world of the Forest, counsels him in the art of love. As You Like It is one of Shakespeare’s most enchanting comedies and Rosalind is the most witty and wise-cracking heroine of them all. An exciting collaboration with Shared Experience, the award-winning theatre company lauded for their visually dynamic storytelling whose iconic productions include Mill on the Floss and Jane Eyre.

  12. After the Dance A dazzling dissection of love, class and the capacity for self-deceit. David and Joan Scott-Fowler were Bright Young Things of the 1920s and live a glamorous life of hedonism and pleasure: debauched parties, serious drinking, sparkling wit and superficiality. But times have moved on and they are no longer as bright or as young as they once were. When a young and idealistic couple come into their lives, they begin to realise that the gaiety of their youth is wearing thin and the precarious game around which their existence is constructed begins to fall apart. Sharply satirical and heartrendingly beautiful, After the Dance is about a world on the cusp of enormous change. Neglected for many years, it is now considered to be one of the great works of a master dramatist.

This is her biggest national tour to date and is a brand new show packed with brilliant, offbeat observation, passionate argument, and jokes.
