Bell Shakespeare's As You Like it

8 Apr 2015 to 18 Apr 2015

She loves him and he loves her. But she must dress as a he, and now there’s another her.


Passionate and disarming, As You Like It is about a love so grand, our heroine is willing to break all the rules of romance to win the boy.

Exiled to the Forest of Arden, Rosalind finds danger and mischief lurking behind every tree. She’s in love with Orlando, but must dress as the boy Ganymede. And so begins a gender bending courtship that shows that true love really does conquer all – even with a bit of cross dressing thrown in.

The beguiling and chaotic As You Like It – one of Shakespeare’s most beloved romantic comedies – will be directed by Co-Artistic Director, Peter Evans, fresh from a stellar year in 2014 (Tartuffe, The Dream, Intimate Letters). Featuring an inspiring cast, led by John Bell as the melancholic Jaques, and the exuberant Zahra Newman as Rosalind.

For anyone who's ever risked it all for love, you’ll love As You Like It.
