“Inspired… I’d be surprised if people left the theatre without grinning like a loon”
“A joyful celebration of Shakespeare”
The Public Reviews
“Simon Lipkin ad libs with sharp wit and buoyant eccentricity… By the time the brilliantly comic second half has come to an end, the audience is left giddy, grinning, and brushing confetti off their shoulders.”
The Arts Desk
“captures the grit and heartache of this tale of banishment and infatuation… Shakespeare that is accessible but also staged with a playful exuberance”
Shakespeare’s great comedy comes to Southwark Playhouse this autumn!
Rosalind, daughter of a duke banished by his own brother, is forced into exile by her despotic uncle. With only her spectacular wit and her loyal cousin Celia and servant Touchstone to support her, she is forced to disguise herself as a man and enter the Forest of Arden searching for her father.
When the love of her life, Orlando, also on the run in the forest, doesn’t recognise her, Rosalind decides to teach him the truth about love.
