As You Like It

2 hr 39 min | Royal Shakespeare Company | 2019

Rosalind is banished, and with her best friend Celia by her side, journeys to a world of exile. But not before catching the eye of love-struck Orlando who is also forced from the Court into the Forest. What ensues is a riotous combination of a feisty cross-dressing heroine, a tartan-clad fool, melodic songs, questionable poetry and laughs aplenty. Will love conquer all, or is it merely a madness?
