Sermons in stones, and good in everything.’
Act III, scene 2

Synopsis


Our ‘buoyant and embracive’ (★★★★ The Stage) production from 2018 returns to the Globe Theatre this summer.

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. A series of mistaken identities and mishaps in the Forest of Arden ultimately sees new friendships formed, and families and lovers reunited.
