Fleet the time carelessly, as they did in the golden world.

Rosalind, 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.

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.
