Shakespeare’s beloved comedic romance follows Rosalind and Celia’s adventures in the Forest of Arden.
When Celia’s usurping father exiles her beloved cousin, Rosalind, the two girls decide to flee court and find Rosalind’s father--Duke Senior--who is residing in the forest with several other nobles. Rosalind, disguised as a young man named Gannymede, meets Orlando, who asks her to “train him” in the ways of love. Simultaneously, a young shepherdess named Phoebe also falls in love with Rosalind-as-Gannymede. Hilarious mistakes of identity and misplaced affection enuse.
