As You Like It
|Published: 14th November 2017 20:54|
Shakespeare’s poetic and irresistibly funny comedy of mistaken identity and love is coming to the New Theatre on the 24th and 25th November.
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 most popular comedies with the most witty and wise-cracking heroine of them all, As You Like It is transformed in a bold new production by Kate Saxon.
Showing at New Theatre Royal in Portsmouth on Friday 24th- Saturday 25th November 2017. Visit www.newtheatreroyal.com for more information.
