Everyone enjoys a romantic comedy, even to this day, and with As You Like It, audiences can enjoy one of the earliest in existence with Shakespeare’s classic tale of troubled lovers. It appears at the Olivier National Theatre on South Bank, where audiences will revel in a classic tale directed by the acclaimed Polly Findlay.
