CBC Drama Special As You Like It

CBC Drama Special As You Like It

This delightful romantic comedy, lavishly staged by the Stratford Festival, has been a favourite with audiences throughout the centuries. In this acclaimed production John Hirsch directs Roberta Maxwell and Rosemary Dunsmore as Rosalind and Celia, with Andrew Gillies as Orlando and Nicholas Pennell as Jaques. Pitting young love against the vanity of the court, the fairytale play tells the familiar story of exiled lovers reunited, woodland meanderings, mistaken identities and political wrongs set right. A brilliant and magical celebration of romance, passion and unity. Rich in mythology, the play deals with the transformation of souls from evil to good.
