Are we out of the woods, yet? In this popular Shakespeare comedy, two worlds collide in a beguiling game as usurped thrones and wealth, family feuds, love triangles and disguises fuse. On one side, Duke Frederick’s pompous and corrupt court, usurped from his brother the Duke Senior. On the other, Oliver, who denies his brother Orlando his right to the family wealth and proper education on becoming a gentleman and plots to have him killed. Stuck in the middle are two friends: Rosalind, Duke Senior’s daughter, and Celia, Duke Frederick’s daughter, who escape the court life in favor of the forest of Arden. Disguises and secrets get in the way of love and result in hilarious love triangles that only a ‘magical transformation’ can fix.
