As You Like It

As You Like It - 2016


Duke Frederick has usurped the Duchy and exiled his older brother, Duke Senior. Senior's daughter Rosalind stays on at court with her cousin Celia. Orlando, a young gentleman of the kingdom who has fallen in love at first sight of Rosalind, is forced to flee after being persecuted by his older brother, Oliver. Celia and Rosalind decide to flee together accompanied by the jester Touchstone.

Rosalind, now disguised as a man named Ganymede, and Celia, now disguised as Aliena, arrive in the Forest of Arden. Rosalind, also in love with Orlando, meets him as Ganymede and pretends to counsel him to cure him of being in love.

Meanwhile, the shepherdess Phebe, with whom Silvius is in love, has fallen in love with Ganymede (Rosalind). The cynical Touchstone has also fallen for the dull-witted goat-herd girl Audrey, and attempts to marry her before his plans are thwarted by the intrusive Jaques.

Orlando rescues his brother Oliver from a lioness. Oliver meets Aliena (Celia) and falls in love with her, and they agree to marry.

The final scene culminates in a four wedding celebration. They discover that Frederick has also repented his faults, deciding to restore his legitimate brother, Senior to the dukedom.
