A reprisal of the much loved production in 2011, As You Like It runs the glorious gamut of pastoral romance: cross-dressing and love-notes; poetry and brilliant conversation; gentle satire, slapstick and passion. Rosalind, the daughter of a banished duke, falls in love with Orlando at a wrestling match, but her usurping uncle, jealous of her popularity banishes her from court.
Disguised as a boy she seeks out her father and his friends in the Forest of Arden. Here she meets Orlando again and, under the guise of a young man, counsels him in the arts of love. Performed at the Globe and touring on an Elizabethan style stage, a small troupe of travelling players breathes new life into this firm favourite among Shakespeare’s comedies.
