This warm, open-hearted production promises adventure, sibling rivalry, mistaken identity and romance – Shakespeare comedy As You Like It.

Max Webster directs the Bard’s brilliant comedy. Webster returns to Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre following his production of Twelfth Night re-imagined in 2014.

In the mythical forest of Arden, a world of transformation where anything is possible and anything permissible, two young people discover what it really means to be in love.

Webster recently directed A Winter’s Tale (Edinburgh Lyceum), The Twits and King Lear (Northampton Royal & Derngate), and The Lorax, which is currently playing at The Old Vic.

As You Like It features design by Naomi Dawson, who recently designed Dr Faustus (Royal Shakespeare Company) and Brave New World (Northampton Royal & Derngate). Movement direction is by Polly Bennett, lighting design is by Lee Curran (Jesus Christ Superstar) and sound design by Gareth Fry.

Olivia Vinall (Rosalind) recently played the dual roles of Laura Fairlie and Anne Catherick in BBC1’s new adaptation of The Woman In White, while Edward Hogg (Orlando) recently appeared as Romeo in Romeo and Juliet at Shakespeare’s Globe, where he has also appeared in The God of Soho, Measure for Measure, The Tempest and The Storm.

With beautiful new music by Charlie Fink (former frontman of Noah and the Whale), As You Like It is an enchanting and hilarious treat at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre.
