“Love is merely a madness; and, I tell you, deserves as well a dark house and a whip as madmen do; and the reason why they are not so punish'd and cured is that the lunacy is so ordinary that the whippers are in love too.”
As You Like It, follows two of Shakespeare’s most enchanting heroines, Rosalind and Celia, as they escape the austere world of the court. Finding freedom in the Forest of Arden, they are swiftly entangled in a comedy of romance, disguise, and friendship. Asking us some of life’s greatest questions, this beloved play is full of music, laughter, and Shakespeare’s most beautiful language. A comedy for all ages — this play is both accessible and relatable — exploring what it means to love, make a fool of yourself, and rebel against the man.
