Welcome, flower children, to the story of Rosalind.

Banished from court, and newly disguised as a boy, Rosalind escapes into the forest for a groovy, pastoral adventure. There, she runs into her love Orlando (whose loyalty she works to test).

As the couple navigates the long and winding road, with a price on their heads, colourful characters in their midst, mistaken identities to navigate, and a scheming businesswoman on their tails, it becomes clear that love may not be “all you need.”

Re-set in Canada’s Okanagan Valley in the 1960s, Daryl Cloran’s adaptation of As You Like It combines one of Shakespeare’s most beloved romantic comedies, with the vibrant escapism of the hippie generation, and a psychedelic medley of The Beatles’ greatest hits.

A bonafide hit in Chicago, Washington, and Vancouver, As You Like It makes its Ontario premiere at the Grand Theatre, joyously celebrates love in all its forms, twists, and shouts.
