About the event

Shakespeare’s poetic and irresistibly funny comedy of mistaken identity and love.

Set in the modern world of alternative facts and fiercely jealous leaders, the young Rosalind and her friend Celia find themselves pawns in a power struggle. Together they decide to flee the city and its politics for the forest where they discover a countryside wonderland of peace and harmony. Disguised as a boy, Rosalind meets Orlando and, amidst the intoxicating atmosphere of the forest, counsels him in the art of love.

One of Shakespeare’s best loved comedies, with the most witty and wise-cracking heroine of them all, is transformed in a bold new production by Kate Saxon.

The award-winning Shared Experience return with an evocative new production of As You Like It, giving a new lease of life to their unique and inventive storytelling.
