O, wonderful, wonderful, and most wonderful wonderful! and yet again wonderful, and after that out of all whooping. 

Thea Sharrock's irresistible 2009 production of Shakespeare's popular romantic comedy stirs wit, sentiment, intrigue and love into a charming confection which challenges the traditional rules of romance.

At its heart, a feisty but feminine Rosalind (Naomi Frederick), in love with the endearingly naïve Orlando (Jack Laskey), uses her disguise as Ganymede to counsel him playfully in the art of wooing.

Distraction is provided by Dominic Rowan, a remarkably funny Touchstone, and Tim McMullan, whose sonorous tones are perfectly suited to the lugubrious wit of Jaques.

 

A production of such sweet humour and wit that you find yourself surrendering to it just as Rosalind allows herself to surrender to love. 

Guardian

Almost continuously enchanting. 

Daily Telegraph

Bursting with youth and vigour ... Feelgood theatre, indeed.  

Independent

I was transported to a dream world of duck down simply by the jollity of the production. 

Daily Mail

 

As You Like It was staged and filmed live at Shakespeare's Globe in 2009 and is part of the Shakespeare's Globe Collection.
