As You Like It
A firm favourite among Shakespeare’s comedies, and featuring some of his best-loved characters, As You Like It runs the glorious gamut of pastoral romance: cross-dressing and brilliant conversation, gentle satire, forgiveness and reparation.

DescriptionRosalind, the daughter of an unjustly exiled duke, falls in love with the wronged Orlando, a courtier deprived of his birthright by his brother – but her usurping uncle, jealous of her popularity, banishes her from court. Disguised as a boy and accompanied by her cousin Celia, she seeks out her father and his friends in the Forest of Arden. There she meets Orlando again and, under the guise of a young man, counsels him in the art of love. 'Playing alongside Hamlet will be As You Like It. Both written around 1599, the year the original Globe was built, these plays speak to each other in surprising and exciting ways. An ensemble of artists will explore these well-thumbed and popular plays in parallel, as if for the first time, and will put the story and the storyteller at the heart of this exploration.’ Michelle Terry, Artistic Director Discover these sibling plays with our specially programmed two-show days, when the ensemble will perform both consecutively.
