Wrestling. Cross-dressing. Lots of people fall in love with shepherds. There’s a lion (???). 4x marriage. It's one of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies.
Join us in the Forest of Arden where ladies disguise themselves as shepherds, young men and women fall in and out of love, and all roles are reversed. Orlando is a lovesick young gentleman running from mistreatment by a dastardly older brother. Rosalind is banished from the dukedom her father once ruled, and she must hide from her vengeful yet powerful uncle - the new Duke. Both escape to the magical Forest of Arden. There, in the forest, Rosalind disguises herself as a young man. Disguised as a man, Rosalind takes it upon herself to teach her hopeless would-be lover Orlando the art of love. Anything is possible in the topsy turvy world of the Forest of Arden, where music reigns and love is in the air.
As the melancholy Jaques famously says, "All the world's a stage..."
