And are you so in love?
Neither rhyme nor reason can express how much.
Royal Shakespeare Company Artistic Director Michael Boyd directs the RSC Ensemble in As You Like It with Katy Stephens as Rosalind and Jonjo O'Neill as Orlando.
Unable to act on their feelings and forced into exile in the Forest of Arden, lovers Rosalind and Orlando become entangled in a beguiling game of love, lust and mistaken identity.
One of Shakespeare's great comedies, As You Like It subverts the traditional rules of romance. Gender roles nature and politics are confused in a play that reflects on how bewildering yet utterly pleasurable life can be.
Captures the liberating power of love.
Captured live at the Courtyard Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon in September 2010.
