About the play...
King Ferdinand of Navarre and his friends vow celibacy for three years in order to devote themselves to scholarly pursuits. They forswear women for this period in order to keep their minds solely focused on learning. Unfortunately for them, they have forgotten that the Princess of France and her ladies are scheduled to visit on diplomatic business - when they meet, romantic chaos ensues as their vows are tested.
For over 30 years Castle Theatre Company has taken its annual summer Shakespeare tour around the south of England and the USA, performing classic comedies on the lawns of stately homes, gardens and abbeys across two continents. Renowned for its high-standard, the Summer Shakespeare promises an evening of excellent family entertainment.
Gates open for picnics from 6pm. Performance begins at 7pm.
Please bring seating or picnic blanket. Tables & chairs welcome too!
Raffle during the interval, with a finish expected for 9.30pm.
Sorry no dogs. Sorry no refunds.
