Summer Vacation to Michaelmas Week 5
"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players..."
Duke Frederick has usurped and exiled his brother Duke Ferdinand. Oliver de Boys is plotting against his brother Orlando’s life. Rosalind has disguised herself as a man, and run off into the Forest of Ardenne alongside her cousin Celia. Jacques is meta-theatrically moping around the stage. Touchstone is trying desperately to herd goats. Silvius is being shunned by everyone he meets. Amiens's throat hurts. Shakespeare’s early comedy takes us into a world of mistaken identities, murderous plots, cross-dressing, pastoral love, and wrestling.
With a modern, gender-bending, bohemian aesthetic, live music, and a lot of ribbons, CAST 2016 brings one of Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies to the stage. Join us under the Greenwood tree.
The Cambridge American Stage Tour (CAST), established under the patronage of Dame Judi Dench in 2000, is one of the major international theatre tours of the University of Cambridge. It aims to bring the work of Shakespeare to as wide an audience as possible in the eastern United States. Now in its seventeenth year, Cambridge University’s largest international tour show has been performing to packed houses and critical acclaim since 2000. Each September, Cambridge’s most talented actors, directors, designers and technicians travel across the Atlantic to bring a Shakespeare play to colleges, high schools and professional theatres. CAST is increasingly renowned as a showcase of the leading dramatic talent in Cambridge, including countless actors and directors about to enter the world of professional theatre.
