As You Like It
You have just one week left to escape with us to the Forest of Arden - As You Like It must close next Saturday 24 March!
La Boite's biggest production yet, and a
life-affirming trip into the Forest of Arden; a feast of wit and wisdom,
love and lust, cross-dressing and cross-purposes.
Let the love match begin… Rosalind falls in love with the younger Orlando at a wrestling match, as you do. Banished from the city by her usurping uncle, she disguises herself as a man, as you would. With her best friend Celia at her side, she seeks refuge in the magical Forest of Arden where she meets Orlando again and teaches him the art of love, just as she likes it. Shakespeare's most joyous comedy is a feast of wit and wisdom, love and lust, cross-dressing and cross-purposes. This is a life-affirming, wonderfully optimistic trip into the forest of love performed by a crack cast for your special beguilement.
"There's something about Hamlet, Julius Caesar and As You Like It, especially written for the newly built Globe Theatre at the turn of the 17th century, which makes them feel right for La Boite's Roundhouse… The way they acknowledge the space and the audience; the way they revel in the 'roundness' of the experience," La Boite Artistic Director David Berthold said of his decision to program three Shakespeares in as many years.
"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players" Jaques, As You Like It
