About As You Like It
It may be a man’s world in the city, but in the Forest of Arden, it’s Girls Gone Wild. Escaping political persecution, Rosalind and Celia flee – disguised – to the Forest of Arden. Dressed as a man named Ganymede, Rosalind discovers the pains of a woman when she falls for Orlando. But when Orlando confesses to Ganymede his love for the woman Rosalind – the Game of Love begins! She’s the girl who becomes the boy to get the boy who wants the girl. Sound confusing? No more so than your average love affair! Love and Romance are equal parts celebrated and skewered in this timeless tale of a woman disguised to win her love.
