14:30, Wed 20th – Fri 22nd June 2007 at Emmanuel Fellows' Gardens
Easter May Week
"All the world's a stage, / And all the men and women merely players"
Orlando's brother Oliver is plotting against his life. Rosalind's father Duke Senior has been banished by his brother Duke Frederick. Duke Frederick then also banishes Rosalind. Eager to escape the perils of court life, all three banished persons retreat to the pastoral bliss of the Forest of Arden; a place of song, dance, disguise, and most importantly: love. Cue cases of mistaken identity, murderous plots and wedded bliss! This Mayweek will see a unique collaboration of a Pembroke Players' production in the intimate setting of Emmanuel college fellow's garden with one of Shakespeare's relatively lesser known, yet highly entertaing, pastoral comedies.
