Written by: William Shakespeare

As You Like It boasts one of Shakespeare's nuttiest plots. It has a bit of passion, a bit of cross-dressing, lots of slapstick farce... and of course a wrestling match to boot.

When Rosalind falls in love with a man called Orlando at a wrestling match, her uncle suddenly banishes her from court. He's panicking in case Orlando tries to reclaim the birthright, that the usurping uncle stole from him. She then seeks out her father in the Forest of Arden and, disguised as a boy, teaches Orlando how to woo.

New friendships are formed, family rifts are repaired, and lovers are reunited. (Don't worry, it will all make sense when you watch it.)

Note: the Globe's theatre season runs from April to October. Craig has been to watch a play at the Globe himself and thoroughly recommends it because it's not like any other theatre you've ever seen -- it's all open-air, for a start, and it has a standing area in the middle (called 'The Yard'). The actors sometimes parade through this yard during the scenes, and end up involving the crowd as if they were part of the cast. Read Craig's review of watching a play at the Globe before you go, so you can get a feeling for what it's like inside.
