Text by Jack Foley
‘O that thou didst know how many fathoms deep
I am in love!’
As You Like It is Shakespeare’s comic
In fear of their lives, Rosalind and Celia flee to a forest.
Escaping what they most fear, they both discover what they most
love. Sparkling with wit, this joyous tale of a girl disguised
as a boy - who tempts the man she loves to fall for the boy she
isn’t – has all the longing and pain of everyone’s
first big romance.
A brilliant cast of young British actors is led by multi-award
winning Helen McCrory (Donmar’s Twelfth Night, Uncle Vanya)
as Rosalind with rising star Sienna Miller (Layer
Cake, Alfie) as Celia.
Dominic West (Mona
Lisa Smile, The Forgotten,
28 Days) plays Orlando.
Also starring are the comic Sean Hughes, Reece Shearsmith of
The League of
Gentlemen and Clive Rowe (Carousel, Simply Heavenly).
This new production by the Young Vic’s David Lan is designed
by Richard Hudson (The Lion King). The play remains in France
but is updated to the late 1940s with music in the style of the
great French chanson.
Cast also includes: Andrew French, Denise Gough, Michael Howcroft,
Rebecca Jenkins, Sam Kenyon, David Killick, Lisa Lee Leslie, Nigel
Richards, Ben Turner, Andrew Woodall
