As You Like It Tickets

London Play
An imaginative retelling of Shakespeare's As You Like It comes to the Barbican
All the world really is a stage in this joyous and imaginative version of Shakespeare’s madcap romantic comedy directed by Kimberley Sykes. Rosalind is banished, and with her best friend Celia by her side, she journeys into exile. But not before catching the eye of love-struck Orlando, who is also forced from The Court into the dappled Forest of Arden. What ensues is a riotous combination of a feisty cross-dressing heroine, a tartan-clad fool, melodic songs and laughs aplenty. Blending physical comedy, music, storytelling and puppetry, this playful As You Like It brings the audience right to the heart of the action and is a celebration of theatre itself. The RSC’s London production of As You Like It is kindly supported by ICBC (London)

    Great production, but more musical acts would make it more engaging. The first half especially could use more music and better stage design. Acting is fantastic.

    Sadly, we left at the interval; it's a surprisingly poor production from the usually reliable RSC,.

    A sound but rather dull production and a poor set.
