“A fool, a fool! I met a fool i’ the forest!”
For Summer 2021, The Greenhouse filled the venue with joy, music, and laughter in an all-singing, all-dancing, full-of-life reimagining of Shakespeare’s pastoral classic. Rosalind, daughter to a banished Duke is forced to flee the kingdom and find her own way in the world. Orlando, with a tyrant brother hot on his heels is desperate to make a name for himself. With a motley crew of poets and philosophers, they escape to the forest, discovering a world so much brighter than the court they knew.
Complete with a score of original indie-folk music, this cross-dressing love-story is a celebration of love, life, and the joys of being outside again.
