In the Festival Glen Love at first sight, a wrestling match, cross-dressing and a fool! Shakespeare's delightful, romantic comedy As You Like It boasts all four, cleverly intertwined with the trials and triumphs of love. Exiled from court, Rosalind ventures into the idyllic Forest of Arden with the fool, Touchstone, only to discover her true love Orlando awaits her. What follows is an elaborate scheme to capture his heart through her witty and playful ploy: instruct Orlando how to woo a woman while disguised as a boy. As You Like It explores the vast and varied incarnations of love culminating in a woodland wedding extravaganza!
“All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women, merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts..."
- Act II, scene vii
