The glorious comedy of love and change

As You Like It

With her father the Duke banished and in exile, Rosalind and her cousin Celia leave their lives in the court behind them and journey into the Forest of Arden.

There, released from convention, Rosalind experiences the liberating rush of transformation. Disguising herself as a boy, she embraces a different way of living and falls spectacularly in love.

Shakespeare’s glorious comedy of love and change comes to the National Theatre for the first time in over 30 years.

Evening Standard Award-winner Rosalie Craig plays Rosalind.
