ABOUT THE SHOW

Following their smash-hit collaboration on Twelfth Night, director Simon Phillips, musical theatre icon Christie Whelan Browne and musicians Kate Miller-Heidke and Keir Nuttall reunite for another spectacular slice of Shakespeare: the big-hearted comedy As You Like It – one of the Bard's most popular and thematically contemporary plays, and the source of many of his most famous lines.

Warm-hearted and romantic, As You Like It follows the irrepressible Rosalind, who is banished from court with her cousin Celia. But before they can escape into exile, Rosalind catches the eye of love-struck Orlando. What ensues is a riotous tangle of matched and mismatched lovers, mistaken identities, melodic songs and laughs aplenty. Will love conquer all, or is it merely a madness?

With more twists than a country lane, As You Like It is a topsy-turvy celebration of love in all its forms, from a director who has made an art of delighting audiences with Shakespearean romance.
