As You Like It Tickets

Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

Love and sisterhood transforms the Globe Theatre into a joyous community, as Rosalind and Celia escape into the Forest of Arden.

Escape to the Forest With As You Like It Tickets

Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre glows with community spirit in As You Like It this year, and you are invited to escape the confines of the city and revel in the freedom of the forest. The story of two young women who leave court and head into the Forest of Arden to find friends and family is a sparkling comedy that celebrates the redemptive power of love.

What is As You Like It about?

Rosalind and Celia have escaped the restrictions of Court and are looking for Rosalind’s father, the exiled Duke. Orlando has fallen head over heels and wants the whole world to know about it. And deep in the Forest of Arden, unexpected meetings, long awaited reunions and incredible transformations are about to take place…

As You Like It is an exuberant celebration of love as friends, cousins, couples and parents come together under the liberating canopy of the forest. It is one of Shakespeare’s best known and best loved comedies, and has been performed all over the world and reinterpreted in myriad ways since it was written over 400 years ago. It was even in London as recently as this year, at Soho Place Theatre.

There is however no better place to watch this uplifting tale unfold than at the Globe Theatre, where the historic open air auditorium makes As You Like It feel even more authentic and magical.

This was a Relaxed Matinee - though I suspect it wasn't very different from an ordinary matinee apart from the introduction. It was a fun queer take on the play and had good performances - though one or two of the voices were not powerful enough for Read more

The characters were entertaining and the use of more modern musical arrangements brought it to life and made it appealing for younger people-though I found it very enjoyable myself as an over 60!
