Straight from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, the Royal Shakespeare Company head to The Lowry with a season of Shakespeare’s most celebrated plays: As You Like It, Measure for Measure and The Taming of the Shrew.

‘All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players’

This riotous and captivating version of As You Like It is directed by Kimberley Sykes.

Wrestling with her heart and her head, Rosalind has been banished. With her cousin by her side, she journeys to a world of exile where barriers are broken down and all can discover their deeper selves.

An exhilarating version of Shakespeare’s glorious romantic comedy – bursting with contemporary resonance – this is an unmissable opportunity to see the Royal Shakespeare Company on The Lowry’s stage.
