Description

‘All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players’-

Rosalind, banished by her cruel uncle, travels secretly to the Forest of Arden, where her exiled father holds court. There, dressed as a boy to avoid discovery, she encounters the man she loves – now a fellow exile – and resolves to remain in disguise to test his feelings for her. One of Shakespeare’s most sunny, fast-paced and accessible comedies, As You Like It is an exuberant combination of
concealed identities and verbal jousting, burlesque and pastoral dream, reconciliations and multiple weddings.
