“All the worlds a stage” — Celebrating 25 years of Bell Shakespeare and As You Like It

Sunday 29 March 2015, 2–4pm 

In his final year with Bell Shakespeare, we're excited to welcome theatre legend John Bell to Parliament House. John and co-artistic director Peter Evans will discuss the successes and challenges they have faced in creating one of Australia’s leading national arts companies over the last 25 years. Actor Zahra Newman will provide a tantalising preview of how Rosalind will complete her quest to seek safety and find love in the latest production of As You Like It.
