William Shakespeare’s As You Like It at Shakespeares Globe Theatre

Tickets are on sale for William Shakespeare’s As You Like It at Shakespeares Globe Theatre from 17 April 2011 until 26 August 2011.

Rosalind, the daughter of a banished duke, falls in love with Orlando at a wrestling match, but her usurping uncle, jealous of her popularity, banishes her from court. Disguised as a boy she seeks out her father and his friends in the Forest of Arden. Here she meets Orlando again and, under the guise of a young man, counsels him in the art of love.

Performed at the Globe and on an Elizabethan-style stage, a small troupe of travelling players breathes new life into this firm favourite among Shakespeare’s comedies, which runs the glorious gamut of pastoral romance: cross-dressing and love-notes; poetry and brilliant conversation; gentle satire, slapstick and passion.
