An audience favourite since its first performance in 1603, As You Like It is among Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies. An idyllic country setting provides the backdrop for this romantic adventure, as Rosalind and Orlando’s famous courtship is played out amidst the turmoil of political rivalry, mistaken identity and exile in the Forest of Arden.
The traditional rules of romance are discarded as Rosalind, disguised as the boy Ganymede, attempts to ‘cure’ Orlando of his lovesickness. Including some of the Bard’s best wordplay and oft-quoted speeches, including “all the world’s a stage”, As You Like It is a glorious romp in the woods!
