"All the world's a stage..."

... and for their 80th anniversary Shakespeare production, the Theatre Guild is making the outdoors their stage, in Pfitzner Court.

Rosalind's father, Duke Senior, has been deposed from his corporate empire by his scheming brother, Frederick. Orlando's brother, Oliver, wants him killed. The Duke and his followers, including the melancholy Jaques, find refuge in The Forest of Arden. Rosalind is fleeing her usurping uncle with her cousin Celia and Orlando is escaping his murderous brother together with his faithful servant Adam.

Once in the forest, they meet a carnival of characters. Will they find themselves, their families and true love? Of course!

Come and join us for a picnic in the grounds of the University of Adelaide and enjoy one of Shakespeare's most loved comedies. Picnics can be purchased online from www.trybooking.com/XUFF [1] up to 3 days in advance of the performance latest. Please bring your own picnic blankets or low folding chairs.

In the event of bad weather, the performance will take place in an alternative venue on campus so patrons should make their way to Pfitzner Court from where they will be guided to the new venue.

Please note the earlier start time of 7 pm to allow for maximum daylight.
The performances on Sunday 18 and 25 November are matinee performances, commencing at 4 pm.
