As You Like It follows its heroine Rosalind as she flees persecution in her uncle's court, accompanied by her cousin Celia to find safety and eventually love in the Forest of Arden. Disguised as a shepherd boy, Rosalind tests Orlando to see if he truly cares for her as he claims. In the forest they encounter a variety of memorable characters, notably the melancholy traveler Jaques who provides a sharp contrast to the other characters in the play, always observing and disputing the hardships of life in the country. As You Like It is considered one of Shakespeare’s funniest and finest works and remains an audience favorite.
