As You Like It is a refugee story, a tale of people fleeing tyranny for the uncertain sanctuary of the unpopulated natural world. It is also a love story in which Rosalind falls in love with Orlando at a wrestling match. As the daughter of a banished duke, she must escape or be executed. Joined by her cousin Celia and the jester Touchstone, she disguises herself and they escape to the forest of Arden. In exile, Shakespeare’s characters redefine themselves and make a new life.
One of Shakespeare’s great comedies with some of his most loved characters, As You Like It flips the traditional rules of romance. Gender roles, nature and politics run amok in a play that reflects on how confounding yet undeniably pleasurable life can be.
Join us in the Forest of Arden where love and music reign!
