As You Like It is an adventure of the heart, a journey through a forest of poetry and a tale of love so grand all the rules are broken, to win the heart of a boy.

Passionate and disarming, the comedy classic will be the fourth annual Shakespeare production to be presented at Flutterbies.

Play director Solar Chapel said this had become one of Flutterbies' most popular events of the year and is known for its interactive performance.

"The dinner is banquet style with long tables named after characters in the play, and everyone receives a goblet of mulled wine on arrival,” he said.

Get in quick, with tickets already sold out for the Saturday performance.

The play starts at 7pm.

Tickets cost $75 and include dinner and mulled wine on arrival. Bookings on (02)66793221.
