Open-air theatre for Shakespeare fans

Watch the fabulous characters of Shakespeare come to life in the beautiful grounds at the National Trust for Scotland’s Threave Garden and Estate tomorrow (8 August.)

The Festival Players return with the Bard’s wonderful comedy full of love, laughter and lyricism – a colourfully-costumed two hour show, full of engaging characters featuring songs set to original music by Johnny Coppin.

Unable to act on their feelings and forced into exile in the Forest of Arden, lovers Rosalind and Orlando become entangled in a beguiling game of love, lust and mistaken identity.

The performance begins at 7pm for tickets: www.nts.org.uk or call 01556 502575.
