As We Like It. Shakespeare's play is reinterpreted by this award-winning company of learning disabled actors, as part of the Royal Shakespeare Company's Open Stages project. It's the Summer of Love. Life in the city is miserable for Rosalind and Orlando who, independently from each other, escape to the forest where the hippie community follow Big Daddy and personal freedom. In the city Rosalind and Orlando fall in love, in the forest Rosalind dresses as a boy and uses this to test Orlando as a suitable lover. Told with music, dance, song and a 1960s soundtrack.
