"All the world's a stage...." In the enchanted forest of Arden, everyone has their way. Sins are forgiven, quarrels are resolved, and love rules over all. And - just as the author liked it - the frolic of clowns and comedy includes provocative insight into nature versus society and into humanity itself. Follow Orlando, Celia, Rosalind, and Touchstone the Clown from court to forest in this play that features disguised princesses, an unjustly deposed ruler, and a handsome leading couple. Actors Vanessa Redgrave (Rosalind) and Keith Michell (Orlando) head the cast of celebrity performers in this Shakespearean romp of mischief, intrigue, and surprise.More
This was the first Shakespeare play that I read and studied in school. I remember distinctly the tremendous wit and mature comedy, the romance, the intrigue and the brilliant optimism of this idyllic play. Here, there's assembled a truly stellar cast, including Vanessa Redgrave, and Max Adrian as Jacques, who delivers the famous "All the world's a stage" speech with wonder. So, away to the forest of Arden - it's a great couple hours' trip! (David O.)
