As You Like ItShakespeare's As You Like It comes to the National Theatre for the first time in 30 years this autumn. Polly Findlay directs while Rosalie Craig plays Rosalind in the breezy comedy of banishment, cross-dressing and unexpected romance. The story follows Rosalind as her father, the Duke, is banished and in exile so she and her cousin leave their lives in court behind them and journey into the Forest of Arden. There Rosalind experiences the liberating rush of transformation and she disguises herself as a boy and falls in love.
