As You Like It description

Rosalind is banished, and with her best friend Celia by her side, she journeys into exile. But not before catching the eye of love-struck Orlando, who is also forced from The Court into the dappled Forest of Arden. What ensures is a riotous combination of a feisty cross-dressing heroine, a tartan-clad fool, melodic songs and laugh aplenty.

Blending physical comedy, music, storytelling and puppetry, this playful As You Like It brings the audience right to the heart of the action and is a celebration of theatre itself.

‘Inventive, playful, captivating… a bonkers trip to the Forest of Arden’ ★★★★ Daily Telegraph

Review: AS YOU LIKE IT at the National Theatre

by Phil Willmott | Wednesday, November 4 2015, 20:49

As You Like It Shakespeare’s comedy of gender swapping lovers and philosophising in a forest is problematic for modern audiences.

Rosalind and Celia, two princess types fleeing an overbearing duke, escape with the court jester to a forest where the former and overthrown duke hangs out with his witty exiled court. They learn about love by observing the shepherds and via Rosalind disguising herself as a boy and making friends with Orlando, the man she fancies, to help him practice how to chat her up.
