As You Like It at New Theatre Royal Portsmouth

Shakespeare’s poetic and irresistibly funny comedy of mistaken identity and love comes to New Theatre Royal Portsmouth on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th November 2017.

Set in the modern world of alternative facts and fiercely jealous leaders, the young Rosalind and her friend Celia find themselves pawns in a power struggle.

Together they decide to flee the city and its politics for the forest where they discover a countryside wonderland of peace and harmony.

Disguised as a boy, Rosalind meets Orlando and, amidst the intoxicating atmosphere of the forest, counsels him in the art of love.

One of Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies, with the most witty and wise-cracking heroine of them all, is transformed in a bold new production by Kate Saxon.

There are three performances: Friday 24th November from 7:30pm, Saturday 25th November from 2:30pm, and Saturday 25th November from 7:30pm.

Ticket prices vary between performances and seating bands. Book yours via the New Theatre Royal website.
