Every word counts

As You Like It

Synopsis

Shakespeare’s poetic and irresistibly funny comedy of mistaken identity and love. 
 
Set in the modern world of alternative facts and fiercely jealous leaders, the young Rosalind and her friend Celia find themselves pawns in a power struggle. Together they decide to flee the city and its politics for the forest where they discover a countryside wonderland of peace and harmony. Disguised as a boy, Rosalind meets Orlando and, amidst the intoxicating atmosphere of the forest, counsels him in the art of love. 
 
One of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies with the most witty and wise-cracking heroine of them all, As You Like It is transformed in a bold new production by Kate Saxon.
 
An exciting collaboration with Shared Experience, the award-winning theatre company lauded for their visually dynamic storytelling whose iconic productions include Mill on the Floss and Jane Eyre.
