A pastoral comedy featuring one of Shakespeare’s greatest female

protagonists and the legendary “All the World’s a Stage” speech. After her

father, Duke Senior, is usurped and banished by her uncle, Duke Frederick,

Rosalind is kept at court as a companion for her cousin Celia. When

Rosalind is put under suspicion for being a traitor due to showing favour to

the son of one of Frederick’s old enemies, Orlando, she is banished. She

disguises herself as a man and flees with Celia and the Duke’s fool

Touchstone to the forest of Arden where her father resides. Complications

arise when she discovers that Orlando has also fled to Arden to escape his

jealous and murderous sister, and is openly pining for Rosalind. Disguised

as a man, she tests Orlando by teaching him in the ways of love and wooing.

Matters are complicated further when she attempts to advocate for the

lovesick Silvia to her cold-hearted love Phebe, who instead falls in love with

the disguised Rosalind.

Romance, reconciliation, fantastical escapades ending in a quadruple

wedding ensue!
