About the show
Shakespeare returns to the Ludlow Festival, with the Stafford Gatehouse Theatre's production of "As You Like It" taking centre stage against the dramatic backdrop of Ludlow Castle.
Celebrated as one of Shakespeare's most popular comedies, the tale revolves around heroine Rosalind, the daughter of a banished duke, and her love for Orlando, the disowned son of the duke's friend. The story mixes comedy, romance, redemption, and in typical Shakespearean fashion, some cross-dressing too.
John Challis stars as the "Melancholy Jaques" and Eric Potts ("Coronation Street") as Touchstone, the court jester.
