Stage favourite Rosalie Craig (The Light Princess, NT) heads up a talented cast in Shakespeare's comedy As You Like It, playing the lead role of Rosalind. One of Shakespeare's most enduring and popular comedies, As You Like it combines cross-dressing, satire and intellect in a story of love, justice and court life. Famed for originating the phrase "All the world's a stage", this is also a musical comedy, featuring more songs in this one work than the rest of the Bard's plays put together.
