News

We are thrilled to see such high praise for As You Like It, the first production made specially for new London theatre @sohoplace, featuring a score composed, and performed live on a baby grand piano, by Michael Bruce! Starring in this Shakespearean classic are American actor Martha Plimpton, and Strictly Come Dancing 2021 winner, and Deaf actor, Rose Ayling-Ellis, amongst a terrific ensemble.

BSL and captions are also interwoven into the production, for an inclusive experience for all.

★★★★

‘Martha Plimpton and the whole ensemble shine in Shakespeare’s nuanced romance interwoven with sign language and song’
