Shakespeare's Globe

As You Like It [2011]

Written by: William Shakespeare
Directed by: James Dacre

Rosalind, the daughter of a banished duke, falls in love with Orlando at a wrestling match, but her usurping uncle, jealous of her popularity, banishes her from court. Disguised as a boy she seeks out her father and his friends in the Forest of Arden. Here she meets Orlando again and, under the guise of a young man, counsels him in the art of love.

Performed at the Globe and on an Elizabethan-style stage, a small troupe of travelling players breathes new life into this firm favourite among Shakespeare’s comedies. As You Like It runs the glorious gamut of pastoral romance: cross-dressing and love-notes; poetry and brilliant conversation; gentle satire, slapstick and passion.
