Shakespeare’s glorious comedy of love and change comes to the National Theatre for the first time in over 30 years, with Rosalie Craig as Rosalind.
With her father the Duke banished and in exile, Rosalind and her cousin Celia leave their lives in the court behind them and journey into the Forest of Arden.
There, released from convention, Rosalind experiences the liberating rush of transformation.
Disguising herself as a boy, she embraces a different way of living and falls spectacularly in love.
“As You Like It” features a big ensemble cast of National Theatre Live performers, including Rosalie Craig (London Road) as Rosalind and Patsy Ferran (Treasure Island) as Celia. This high-quality, feel-good Shakespeare comedy boasts a stunning set with a spectacular scene change into the Forest of Arden.
