"Live a little, Comfort a little, Cheer thyself a little!"
After a year-long hiatus, Sport for Jove's much loved outdoor summer season RETURNS THIS DECEMBER AND JANUARY to Bella Vista Farm and the Leura Everglades with our new production of...
As You like It
written by william shakespeare | directed by damien ryan | original music composed by alec steedman
Bring some wine, bring a picnic, bring a feast and get outdoors this summer (the safest place to be after two years locked in our homes!) and immerse yourself in one of the world’s most joyous and entertaining stories.
AS YOU LIKE IT is a tangle of love affairs, narrow escapes, adventures into the wilderness, infatuations, songs, celebrations and comic chaos so wonderfully untidy that only the entrance of a god can clean up its exquisite mess, offering in the process, irrefutable and highly optimistic proof that love is a very real, and deeply good, thing. And of course, as Rosalind says, “… merely a madness”
Sport for Jove’s adored and celebrated Summer Shakespeare Season returns in December/January, featuring two unforgettable experiences: AS YOU LIKE IT - playing at Bella Vista Farm and Leura Everglades, and our feature fundraising film VENUS AND ADONIS - playing in cinemas across Sydney.
