AS YOU LIKE IT
by William Shakespeare
Monday 18 to Saturday 23 July 2016
Fountain Gardens, York House
Witty, bawdy and romantic, As You Like It is the Bard’s great comedy of love. In peril of her life, Rosalind flees the court where she was brought up, to seek her banished father in the Forest of Arden, accompanied by her down-to-earth cousin Celia. Freed from conventions, she discovers her true self and again meets Orlando, the man of her dreams. There’s just one problem – Rosalind is disguised as a boy … Bring a picnic to Twickenham’s idyllic Fountain Gardens and prepare to be wooed by a host of memorable characters transported to the chic and stylish, Charleston-tapping twenties. Whoop the wrestling, ponder the seven ages of man and look out for the goats!
