As You Like It -- Summer 1992
Directed by Simon Pell
The Castle Players returned to the grounds of the Bowes Museum following two years performing in the castle ruins.
Shortly before the production, Andrew Best, who was cast as Orlando, broke his arm. Although he hoped to perform despite his injury, the wrestling scene in which his character first appears made this impossible. Adrian Mitchell learned the part in record time and played Orlando for the public performances, with Besty appearing as a butler.
As You Like It was also memorable as the first year in which the weather turned against The Castle Players; the audience on Saturday night were left in little need of Corin's warning that "the property of rain is to wet!"
