As You Like It

As You Like It is one of Shakespeare’s most glorious and sunniest comedies. Set in a romantic woodland—the Forest of Arden—the play is about a youthful search for identity, love and happiness revolving around the lively character Rosalind. She sets the tone of the play and is among Shakespeare’s most brilliant heroines.

We have set this production in Singapore and Malaysia in 1965, just as Singapore is about to be exiled from the Malayan Union and set adrift to become a wholly independent state. So, this production celebrates a crucial and confusing episode in Singapore’s bicentennial history. Shakespeare’s Forest of Arden become the jungles of Malaysia, where an exiled politician, chastened by nature, returns to assume power by play’s end and all onstage are married and celebrate new unions. Asian Arden becomes a magical wonderland where dappled sunlight and the music and sounds of nature refresh the human spirit and make miracles possible.
