The Forest of Arden arrived on the streets of Stratford, when Highly Sprung was commissioned by the RSC to work on a new piece of interactive street performance for
Shakespeare’s birthday celebrations, inspired by the play As You Like It.
Two madcap ‘theatricals’ invited the gathered street audience to co-create the performance. Audience members become directors, lighting designers, costumiers and at
times, the stars of the show. A director’s chair for the director, a torch for the lighting designer and a full set of costumes and wigs to choose from for the performers.
Armed with Shakespeare’s most memorable moments, love, laughter, marriage, murder and everything in between, All the Street’s a Stage was a highly interactive, funny and engaging improvised performance in celebration of the Bard.
