Who Am I, Anyway? Changing Natures in the Forest of Arden

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

"As You Like It" is considered a romantic comedy, and it certainly has the right “boy meets girl” ingredients. In fact, by the end of the play four boys meet girls. But though the relationship of the central couple, Rosalind and Orlando, is a core element in the work, and is heard in a minor key in the wooings of the three other couples, Michael Boyd’s production for the Royal Shakespeare Company reminds us that all kinds of love are on offer here. There is parental love, filial love, the love of servant for master, and vice versa; there is instant love, devoted love, rejected love — and all of them are put to the test in the Forest of Arden.
