Outdoor Shakespeare in the park this summer
Worthing’s acclaimed Rainbow Shakespeare return to Highdown Gardens for summer 2019 with two very contrasting productions. Picnic under the stars while the magical world of Shakespeare comes alive around you. Celebrating their 20th season, come along and join in a great Sussex tradition!

Thrilling drama unfolds when General Othello is needed by the State. Scandal arises when he marries the young daughter of a nobleman and his ‘honest’ NCO undermines his all-consuming love with hints at her lack of innocence.

“Rainbow Shakespeare do a superb job of entertaining the audience!” – The Argus, Brighton ★★★★★
