Royal Shakespeare Company Artistic Director Michael Boyd directs As You Like It, Shakespeare’s great romantic comedy.
Rosalind and Orlando fall in love, but are unable to act on their feelings. Forced to flee for thier lives into the Forest of Arden, they find themselves entangled in a beguiling game of love, lust and mistaken identity. Subverting the traditional rules of romance, As You Like It confuses gender roles, nature and politics as it reflects on how bewildering yet utterly pleasurable life can be.
As You Like It plays as part of the RSC’s London season at the Roundhouse, in repertoire with seven other plays.
