Love is merely a madness.

Rosalind is banished and with her best friend, Celia by her side, she journeys to a world of exile. But not before catching the eye of love-struck Orlando who is also forced from The Court into the Forest...

What ensues is a riotous combination of a feisty cross-dressing heroine, a tartan-clad fool, melodic songs, questionable poetry and laughs aplenty. Will love conquer all, or is it merely a madness?

Kimberley Sykes (Dido, Queen of Carthage, 2017) directs this playful and passionate version of Shakespeare's much-loved romantic comedy.
