Step into the enchanting world of Shakespeare’s “As You Like It” at the historic Scorrier House. Nestled in the heart of Cornwall, Scorrier House provides a stunning backdrop for this timeless tale of love, laughter, and mistaken identities.

Back for a fourth Summer Season, The Duke’s Theatre Company follow their acclaimed tours of Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Twelfth Night with As You Like It. Robert Shaw Cameron (Coronation Street, Birmingham Rep, Theatre Royal Stratford East, Chester Story House) directs this brand-new production that will visit fifty of the UK’s most magical venues including The Minack, Wilton’s Music Hall and Hever Castle. This As You Like It will live on in your memory “forever and a day”.

About the Play

“…look into happiness through another man’s eyes!”
The ancient Forest of Arden serves as the backdrop for Shakespeare’s most famous and quotable comedy. When Rosalind is banished from Duke Ferdinand’s court, new identities are explored with hilarious consequences. Music, mayhem and madness thrill as we are shown that “All the world’s a stage”.
