Chock full of love, deception, crossdressing, killer lines ("All the world's a stage") and even wrestling, Shakespeare's ultimate romantic comedy also features one of the most vibrant heroines in classical drama. Rosalind is the beautiful daughter of an exiled duke who falls madly in love with the dashing Orlando. When she's banished from the duke's court, Rosalind disguises herself as a boy and flees to the forest. There she encounters comic twists and turns on a merry romp toward an eventual happy ending. Broadcast in HD at the Irvine Barclay from the National Theatre in London, this production from one of the most famous theater companies in the world stars award-winning British stage actress Rosalie Craig.
