As You Like It by William Shakespeare - RSC Live Screening presented by Byron Theatre

Come into the forest; dare to change your state of mind.

Rosalind is banished, wrestling with her heart and her head. With her cousin by her side, she journeys to a world of exile where barriers are broken down and all can discover their deeper selves.

Director Kimberley Sykes (Dido, Queen of Carthage) directs a riotous, exhilarating version of Shakespeare’s romantic comedy.

★★★★ “Inventive, playful, captivating…A bonkers trip to the Forest of Arden… A sublime central performance from Lucy Phelps as Rosalind” Daily Telegraph

★★★★ “Lucy Phelps and Sophie Khan Levy ooze chemistry… some wonderful comedy comes from her character’s banter with Khan’s stroppy Celia” Mail On Sunday

“Lucy Phelps’s Rosalind is the show’s heart and focal point, and a genuinely modern heroine… [she] is a natural physical comedian, and she winks, shrugs, giggles and wiggles her way into the audience’s affection” The Guardian

“Antony Byrne is typically commanding in the roles of both fraternal Dukes… Sophie Khan Levy offers a delightful foil to Phelps’ Rosalind… A coup de théâtre finale” WhatsOnStage

Please note: This is a screening of the theatre performance, recorded live at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon on 17th April, 2019.
