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 art of love.
Performed at the Globe and on an Elizabethan-style stage, a small troupe of travelling players breathes
new life into this firm favourite among Shakespeare’s comedies.
As You Like It runs the glorious gamut of pastoral romance: crossdressing and love-notes; poetry and
brilliant conversation; gentle satire, slapstick and passion.
