The Lord Chamberlain’s Men is an open-air theatre company built upon the same principles that William Shakespeare himself followed: presenting bold, clear and dynamic productions to excite, delight and captivate their audiences.

The production toured the UK and visited six countries over sixteen weeks.
The Reviews Hub review (4 stars): "a thing of joy, accessible, broad and likeable in equal measure." "With a little bit of luck with the weather, a picnic and good company, a night in the open air with Shakespeare feels as traditional and as British as Pimms and Murray Mound. The Lord Chamberlain’s Men, taking their inspiration from the original, show how to do it in style."
