  • Theatre/2013/G2G As You Like It/brochure

This production has now closed.

The Marjanishvili, the latest in a series of Georgian companies including the Rustaveli and the Tumanishvili to have wowed London audiences, return to the Globe with their peerless theatricality and exuberance.

A firm favourite among Shakespeare’s greatest comedies, the Marjanishvili’s production of As You Like It is unforgettably poetic and irresistibly funny. Leaves, umbrellas, comedy sheep...

Secret identities and public passions make merry mischief in the woods when disguised Rosalind follows her banished suitor Orlando to the Forest of Arden. Wooer becomes wooed and order is restored by the madness of love.

‘If all the theatre in Georgia comes anywhere close to this standard, then the job of theatre critic there must be the most covetable in the land.’

The Guardian

‘Zest, hilarity and celebration’

‘Beautiful’
