“Gloriously eccentric and very, very funny.” – The Stage
“Fast-paced, fun and energetic.” – The Shakespeare Standard
“The energy never dropped..a knew-slapper.” – Star2

“Five stars just don’t seem enough. I loved every second.” – Sunderland Echo
The world’s first cycling theatre company, The HandleBards, pedal from venue to venue with all the set, props and costume necessary to perform environmentally sustainable Shakespeare across the globe.
Join their all-female troupe in the grounds of the beautiful Norwich Castle for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s ‘As You Like It’ like none other. In usual HandleBards style, expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter.
And what’s the play about? Well – Rosalind and Orlando have been forced into exile in the Forest of Arden. As lovers, they become entangled in a bizarre game of lust, love and mistaken identity.


Performing at the Whiffler Theatre, Castle Gardens, Norwich NR1 4EY
