The Joys Of Outdoor Shakespeare, As Seen By A Committed Naturephobe
Charles Isherwood: "Having a real forest (or what can pass for one) portray the role of the Forest of Arden in As You Like It
sweetens the atmosphere of that play. Ditto A Midsummer Night's Dream
... And, for many, seeing Shakespeare outdoors frees it from the suffocating air of elitism - or cultural homework - that can often cling to it."
