The world’s first cycling theatre company, The HandleBards, pedal to Maumbury Rings with all the set, props and costume necessary to perform environmentally sustainable Shakespeare across the globe. Join their all-female troupe for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s ‘As You Like It’ like no other. In usual HandleBards style, expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter.
And what’s the play about? Well – Rosalind and Orlando have been forced into exile in the Forest of Arden. As lovers, they become entangled in a bizarre game of lust, love and mistaken identity. Also at the Marine Theatre, Lyme Regis and Bridport Arts Centre
