      A COMEDIE

      In 1978, the BBC set itself the task of filming all of William Shakespeare’s plays for television. The resulting productions, renowned for their loyalty to the text, utilised the best theatrical and television directors and brought great performances from leading contemporary actors.

      “All the world’s a stage
      And all men and women merely players,
      They have their exits and their entrances,
      And one man in his time plays many parts.”

      Banished young lovers Orlando and Rosalind escape to the Forest of Arden with their friends and servants. In this idyllic setting they find the simple life confused by entangled love affairs, cross-dressing, love poems and even a lion . . .

      Helen Mirren and Brian Stirner star as Rosalind and Orlando in one of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies. Considering the delights of love, the nature of human experience and the contrast between life in the court and the country. Shakespeare fills the romantic plot with both humorous and clever wordplay.


      -------------------------

      "As I remember, Adam, it was upon this fashion
      bequeathed me by will but poor a thousand crowns,
      and, as thou sayst, charge by my brother on his blessing
      to breed me well – and there begins my sadness”

      Helen Mirren and James Bolan
      with
      Brian Stirner   Richard Pasco
      Agharad Rees   Tony Church   Clive Francis

      ABOUT AS YOU LIKE IT

      A mention is made in the Stationers’ Register on 4th August 1600 but the play was not printed until 1623 . . . The story of the love between a high-born maiden – Rosalind – oppressed by the uncle – Duke Frederic – who usurped his elder brother’s dukedom, and Orlando, the third and youngest son of Duke Frederick’s old enemy Sir Rowland de Bios . . .

      One of Shakespeare’s great comic triumphs: an exhilarating and joyful tale of love and harmony set in a mythical forest – in fact the perfect romantic comedy . . .
