“As You Like It is a beautifully articulate and funny production”
- Elissa Barnard, The Chronicle Herald, 15/07/2013
The wooded setting at the Ross Creek Centre is a perfect stage for As You Like It, a play about banished lovers who find themselves (and eventually each other) in the Forest of Arden. Michael McPhee’s portrayal of the chivalrous and romantic Orlando is a revelation. He exudes charm…Alexis Milligan brings an irresistible joie de vivre to the character of Rosalind, and is amazingly believable when she takes on the disguise of a young male. As you’d expect, this comedy is rife with humour, but the real surprise is how touching it is. As You Like It may be Two Planks and a Passion’s first foray into The Bard’s work, but here’s hoping it won’t be the last.
—Kate Watson, The Coast Magazine
Pure magic. That pretty much sums up what feels like to sit round a crackling fire while darkness falls and Two Planks and a Passion’s theatrical magicians recount an ancient story of gods and men. Homer’s Iliad has been adapted by the company’s artistic director Ken Schwartz to be told in orchestral fashion, with actors trading lines across the camp fire, sometimes chiming in ghostly whispers or supply haunting rhythms and sound effects. The story is bloody and exciting, and the characters come to life in the flicker of the flames. The theatre experience at Ross Creek has always been unique, but the Iliad is something different again, bringing us to our own recent past as children listening to stories and then stretching beyond to the far-reaching past as humans communing in the firelight.
