As You Like It (1977)
"All the world’s a stage" in Shakespeare's lyrical tale of pastoral life in the Forest of Arden. For nearly 400 years this comedy’s rapturous verse, including some of the Bard’s most beautiful and trenchant speeches, and its lovable characters, have been delighting audiences. Today, in our modern rush and hurry, the Forest of Arden is more appealing than ever. The very title suggests that Shakespeare himself was saying of the play: ‘Here’s something to divert you, something you'll enjoy’ In this play, three of Shakespeare's immortal characters harmoniously interact: Touchstone, the court clown; Jaques, the melancholy philosopher, and Rosalind, one of Shakespeare's most popular heroines, personifying beauty, youth, gaiety and courage. It’s a sweet and warmly human comedy, full of gentle wisdom, bursting with joy and fun.
