‘As You Like It’ Re-told
Harlow Playhouse / Mon 14th Oct 2013 pm31 12:27pm
THE BARD returns to The Playhouse this Thursday as critically acclaimed Transport Theatre Company present their re-telling of the classic Shakespeare comedy As You Like It.
‘A vibrant, touching, and timely story about love and statelessness, As You Like It examines human capacity to endure. Rosalind, the daughter of an exiled leader, falls in love with Orlando. Separately the two are banished from their homeland by Rosalind’s dictator uncle. In the wild depths of the forest they find unexpected freedom and are reunited with friends and family.’
‘Using theatre to examine a complex subject, director Douglas Rintoul researched experiences of exile and identity, working with asylum seekers and migrants from India, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. In this new adaptation, Rintoul underpins Shakespeare’s classic English text with references to contemporary political exile, offering audiences new perspectives on the play, our own society and the wider world.’
