Adelaide Road

Using Shakespeare's As You Like It as inspiration, we have created a journey along Adelaide Road exploring the themes of love, betrayal, exile and home in the 21st century, written by Aoife Mannix and directed by Ola Animashawun.

You can interact with Adelaide road through the iPhone app and a web map. There was also a live performance on Saturday 14 May. To see what happened, take a look at the gallery

Download the App
The iPhone app allows you to play games to collect virtual letters. It also lets you listen to recordings of stories/poems written by participants and Aoife that are thematically linked to each of the seven stages of your journey. In addition you can listen to the 'Red Letter' scenes that are also included in the live performance. This means that the iPhone app can be enjoyed both during and after the live performance whether you are physically on Adelaide Road or not.

About the project
Adelaide Road links the RSC's work at the Roundhouse with A Season of World Premieres at nearby Hampstead Theatre. The project has been created through a series of writing workshops by poet in residence Aoife Mannix who has asked participants to respond creatively to the history and people of Adelaide Road, using the RSC production of As You Like It as an inspiration.

To respond to the writing from the workshops so far, see our blog.
