As You Like It: The Port Elizabeth Shakespearean Festival – Manville Open Air Theatre, St Georges Park, PE

"A fool! A fool! I met a fool in the forest"

From to 7:00 pm

As You Like It follows its heroine Rosalind as she flees persecution in her uncle’s court, accompanied by her cousin Celia to find safety and, eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden. In the forest, they encounter a variety of memorable characters, notably the melancholy traveler Jaques who speaks many of Shakespeare’s most famous speeches (such as “All the world’s a stage”, “too much of a good thing” and “A fool! A fool! I met a fool in the forest”). Jaques provides a sharp contrast to the other characters in the play, always observing and disputing the hardships of life in the country.
The play remains a favorite among audiences and has been adapted for radio, film, and musical theater.
