As You Like It, one of Shakespeare’s best loved comedies, tells the story of Rosalind, a banished young woman in search of her father, the deposed Duke. Disguised as a boy, she meets a young man escaping unfair treatment at the hands of his brother, as well as a band of dissenters and musicians living in exile. All discover the joy of love, friendship, and forgiveness in the Forest of Arden, but not without disguises, clowning, music, and love at first sight. Featuring original music by Christopher Fordinal and set in modern day, this production speaks to our contemporary world – even in a time of displacement and economic hardship, love, friendship and transformation still exist, and it is still possible to see the world as you like it.
