As You Like it by William Shakespeare

London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (2 yr. Acting)

Joanna Read

Performances take place at the Pleasance Theatre, N7 9EF

As You Like It follows one of theatre’s most lovable heroines, Rosalind, as she flees persecution in her uncle’s court accompanied by her loyal cousin, Celia and court jester, Touchstone, to the Forest of Arden. Rosalind proves herself as resourceful as she is beautiful, disguising herself as a boy and Celia as her sister as they venture through the forest seeking safety and, eventually, true love.

Romance, heartbreak and suitable pairings become confused and tangled away from the strict social conventions of the court, but by the end of Shakespeare’s comedy, all strife has been teased out into happy matches and merriment.
