As You Like It archiveWritten around 1600 and set in two contrasting communities; city and forest. Rosalind and Celia have been banished from Court. In fear of their lives, they disguise themselves and seek sanctuary in the Forest of Arden. Amongst the magical and ancient boughs, Rosalind discovers her exiled father, uncovers various truths about herself and others...and falls helplessly in love. But in this earthly paradise nothing is quite what it seems: men do not always act like men, and women can be anything at all...Uplifting, awe-inspiring and immense fun, Shakespeare's wondrous comedy is a joyous celebration of the liberating power of love and the redeeming spirit of nature.

User Reviews

The Sunday Times (11Jan01): This is a seriously enchanting production by a director who knows that the play is much more than a fairy tale. [Victoria Hamilton] speaks Rosalind s wittiest lines as if they had just occurred to her, and her epilogue has a sweetness that brings a lump to your throat.
The Telegraph (11Jan01): What a pleasure to report that this new production, staged by [Michael Grandage], is a triumph, as fresh, funny and touching an account of this beautiful comedy as I have ever seen. It is a night of rare delight.
