About the event
This summer Connaught Village will host open-air theatre Shakespeare in the Squares for a production of As You Like It. The production will be held in Connaught Square on 4th July.
Shakespeare in the Squares is a new, not-for-profit touring theatre company that will stage a Shakespeare play in various London garden squares for one night in exclusive outdoor venues every summer. The productions are tailored to the individual garden squares, and work with the garden committees and other local organisations to create a unique community celebration around the play.
This year's production As You Like It, directed by Tatty Hennessy, is an enchanting tale of love, desire and mistaken identity being set in the late 60s/early 70s.
This witty tale of love and escape celebrates the outdoors, music and nature. The festival feel will translate to the design too, allowing them to integrate their Forest of Arden with the squares themselves, letting them go even further in their celebration of the wonderful setting.
Make the most of your visit to Connaught Village by picking up delicious picnic snacks and drinks from one of the many eateries stocking fresh and artisan produce, including Abasto, Connaught Cellars, Colbeh, Bombay Palace, Buchanans Cheesemonger, Saint Aymes and Assal Patisserie.
