By William Shakespeare

This is the story of Rosalind – Shakespeare’s most charismatic and irresistible heroine. Oppressed and exiled from Court under threat of death, she escapes with her cousin into the wild and unpredictable Forest of Arden. Disguised as a boy, she is able to create a world of her own, reveling in her newfound independence. But chance encounters with the love-struck Orlando complicate this new life. Winding through the enchanting thickets of the forest, will true love find its way? Can one desire too much of a good thing? Find out in this wondrous comedy that celebrates redemption, family, and the liberating power of love.
