As You Like It
by William Shakespeare; producer Brian Matthew
14-15 August 1964, Deepdene, Oxenden Wood Road
The Players returned the spacious garden of the Hansens’ house in Chelsfield Park for their annual outdoor Shakespeare.
As usual, Brian Matthew took the lead male role while his wife Pamela took the lead female role. As the old guard from the 40s and 50s stepped aside (with the exception of Gladys Hollands), new faces began to make more regular appearances.
As was usual with the outdoor Shakespeare productions, As You Like It made a loss, though only around £25, and this was compensated for by the profit on other plays.
