A vibrant new production of Shakespeare's irresistible comedy.
Set in the modern world of fake news and paranoid leaders, the young Rosalind and her friend Celia find themselves pawns in a power struggle. Together they decide to leave the city and its politics for the forest, where they discover a rural wonderland of peace and harmony. Disguised as a boy, Rosalind meets Orlando and, amidst the intoxicating atmosphere of this other world, teaches him the art of love.
As You Like It is one of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies with the most witty and wise-cracking heroine of them all. This season sees it transformed in a beautiful and bold new production by Kate Saxon.
