Staged on beautiful outdoor sets, Hampshire Shakespeare Company's adaptations of The Bard's plays expose audiences to accessible renditions of Elizabethan masterworks. One of Shakespeare's most popular comedies, As You Like It weaves the intricate tale of protagonist Rosalind, the daughter of a banished duke who falls for a heartthrob named Orlando. Before the two can profess their love to each other, Rosalind is banished from the court by her uncle, the usurping Duke Frederick.

Disguised as a young boy, Rosalind skips town with her cousin Celia and court jester Touchstone, and she later discovers her father's exiled court in the Forest of Arden. While still incognito, Rosalind encounters Orlando again and begins investigating the true nature of the young man's feelings for her. With its cross-dressing characters, instances of mistaken identities, and famous monologue "All the world's a stage," As You Like It keeps laughs flowing in iambic pentameter.
