The bards are back!

The HandleBards are back and now its four ladies on bicycles bringing William Shakespeare's 'As You Like It'.  

The HandleBards are the world's first cycling theatre company.

Since 2013, their two troupes (one all-male, the other all-female) have pedalled over 6,000 miles across the UK to perform their unique brand of "charmingly chaotic, environmentally sustainable, bicycle-powered Shakespeare".

This year 'The HandleBards' Ladies bring the same raucous, madcap, rambunctious frolic, as did the lads earlier. As You Like It is described as a 'pastoral comedy'.

'The HandleBards' pride themselves on just how accessible they're able to make Shakespeare and his plays.

They will perform on November 3 and 4, 8 pm and on  November 5 at 3 and 6.30 pm. The venue is Jagriti theatre.

The duration is  120 minutes. The cast has  Eleanor Dillon,  Jessica Hern,  Charlotte Driessler and  Lucy Green.

The crew has  Alberta Jones (designer),  Guy Hughes (musical composer),  Nel Crouch (director),  Paul Moss (tour manager) and  Tom Dixon (producer).

Ticket price is Rs 500. Entry is for eight years and above.
