As You Like It – The Three Inch Fools
The Three Inch Fools are back and rushed off their feet performing one of Shakespeare’s most chaotic comedies. With musical instruments in hand, our hapless troupe of actors hit the road with a production of endless costume changes and confusion.
Join us as The Fools take on Shakespeare’s story of rustic revelry in the Forest of Arden. Rosalind and Celia are on the run, Orlando is practising his passionate yet pathetic attempts at poetry, and a cohort of boisterous lords are rubbing shoulders with a company of country bumpkins. Taking on far too many characters between them, we present three exhausted actors trying to pull off this impossible feat. As Shakespeare so famously said: love is merely a madness, and so is this production.

Bring your own blankets, cushions, and camping-chairs and join us on our outdoor adventure at some of the most beautiful and historic landmarks in the UK. Come prepared for the weather – the performance will continue come rain come shine!
The Three Inch Fools are an innovative touring theatre company acclaimed for their fast-paced and musically driven approach to theatre. They have built a reputation for staging bold and vibrant productions – a fast-paced, musically-driven style, using all sorts of instruments, plenty of multi-roling and many a quick costume change along the way.
This summer The Fools will perform come rain come shine in the great British outdoors at over 80 different venues across the UK – castles, gardens, stately homes, historic barns, National Trust properties, village greens, churches, cathedrals, museums, arts centres, and even a royal residence or two (indeed any place where five actors and an audience can fit!). The Three Inch Fools are in their ninth year of touring, having so far performed at over 170 venues and to almost 100,000 audience members.
