Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon
Until 31 August 2019

Shakespeare’s pastoral comedy contains all the usual themes: cross-dressing, mistaken identity and sparring lovers as Rosalind and her cousin are banished to go a-wandering, only to bump into the heroic Orlando. But there’s an underlying message that the world is a fragile thing, one where men and women enter the forest and find their lives turned upside down. Kimberley Sykes, who won high plaudits for her production of Dido, Queen of Carthage, brings a directorial fluidity to this raucous and riotous production from the Royal Shakespeare Company.
