"I like this place, and willingly could waste my time in it."
In the oppressive court of the usurping Duke Frederick, Rosalind, the duke’s niece, has laid eyes on the young courtier Orlando. But just as love begins to take hold, she is banished from the court. Disguised as a boy, she flees to seek out her exiled father in the Forest of Arden, a place of romance, freedom and the wonder of self-discovery.
A youthful and joyous story about coming of age and learning what it means to be in love, As You Like It brings together some of Shakespeare’s most dazzling comedy and his most beloved characters, including the melancholy Jaques, for whom all the world is a stage.
Directed by Philip Leone-Ganado (“Shakespeare at the Pub”) and starring some of Malta’s best established and up-and-coming actors, accompanied by live music, MADC presents a fresh and accessible take on the classic comedy under the stars in the inimitable setting of San Anton Gardens.
