"That I should love a bright particular star,
And think to wed it, he is so above me"
- Downing College Gardens
The intimate courtyard garden of Downing College is the perfect setting for Shakespeare’s courtly drama of love, disguise and intrigue.

But Helena is determined to get her man – one way or another! Don’t miss this superb production!
...this was brilliant ...a brilliant performance from a cast that cannot be faulted
