I spent a delightful afternoon in Connaught Gardens, Sidmouth, being entertained by a young travelling theatre company performing ‘As you like it’. They are travelling the country so if you get a chance to go, I’d encourage it for the whole family.
They stuck to the original Shakespearean text but it was delightfully interspersed with humour and folk music. The action took place all around us. A young highly energetic cast who ensured we didn’t lose interest. Wish I’d learnt Shakespeare like that at school!!
Picnics, chairs, blankets, sunshine and entertainment in a beautiful spot. Only £10 if booked in advance which, I thought, excellent value.
