As You Like It - Rain or Shine Theatre Company
Wednesday 12th June 2019
Where: Main Abbey
Known as Shakespeare's perfect pastoral play, Rain or Shine is back to present As You Like It.
“All the world's a stage...”
Join one of Shakespeare's most famous heroines, Rosalind, as she makes her way in a world full of power, jealousy and tyranny.
In fear for her life and in search of true love, she flees her heritage with her cousin Celia and fool Touchstone. Will disguising herself as a country lad lead her to a new life full of hope, laughter, and her banished father?
With songs galore, hand-to-hand wrestling, idiotic shepherds and the infamous melancholic Jaques, this comedy is ideal for all the family.
So pack your picnic, rugs and chairs, pop open some bubbly and sit back and relax in the summer sunshine, while we whisk you off to the Forest of Arden where anything can happen!
Doors open at 6:30pm with the performance starting at 7pm.

Attending an Outdoor Event at Glastonbury Abbey:
Glastonbury Abbey is an outdoor event space and as such is open to the vagaries of the British weather. Our advice when attending an event at Glastonbury Abbey is that you should dress appropriately for the weather conditions and also be prepared for changes as the event progresses. Events held in the evening can become cold and/or damp with dew. For predicted rain please bring suitable wet weather clothing (not umbrellas).
The abbey becomes very dark after sunset and has many fall and trip points. We do our best with temporary lighting to illuminate areas of safety concern and exits from the abbey. It is advised to bring a personal torch to aid your exit from the abbey after sunset.
For your comfort you may bring a camp chair or picnic blanket as seating is generally not provided. You may bring your well behaved dog* as long as it is kept on a lead and doesn’t disrupt the event.
Gazebo’s and other large structures are not allowed to be used within the grounds of Glastonbury Abbey.
All events will go on as planned in all weather conditions unless that weather becomes unsafe.
Glastonbury Abbey is a licensed venue. If you are intoxicated upon arrival you may be refused entry. No antisocial behaviour or disrespect toward the site, the ruins, other visitors or staff will be tolerated.
*Not including the Glastonbury Extravaganza which has its own terms and conditions of entry.
This is a Glastonbury Abbey fundraising event, raising funds for the conservation and future care of Glastonbury Abbey for public benefit.
