As You Like It | Theatre Royal
Tue 29 Oct - Sat 2 Nov
When Rosalind and Orlando are banished from the oppressive court, they are forced to run for their lives into the wild depths of the Forest of Arden. However, in that harsh, lyrical wilderness, they discover an unexpected freedom, and as their anarchic love story unfolds, Arden bursts into summer.
Maria Aberg directs following her riotous production of King John in the Swan Theatre as part of the World Shakespeare Festival 2012.
Music for the production is composed by Laura Marling, who has been nominated twice for the Mercury Music Prize and won the Best Female Solo Artist at the 2011 Brit Award.
