SHAKESPEARE IN THE SANGRES As You Like It by William Shakespeare

As You Like It, one of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies, tells the story of Rosalind, who flees to the Forest of Arden with her cousin Celia and the “wise fool” Touchstone, to find her father the Duke, who is living there in exile “like the old Robin Hood of England” with his band of followers. Once there, Rosalind, disguised as a young man, satirically observes the follies of the Forest’s denizens and plays a role in arranging the love lives of all around her – including her own.
