Max Webster directs one of Shakespeare’s greatest comedies As You Like It at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre for a month-long summer season. Featuring as part of theatre’s highly anticipated 2018 season, which includes a revival of Peter Pan and restaging of musical Little Shop of Horrors, the play runs throughout July.

One of the Bard’s best known plays, As You Like It takes place in the mythical Forest of Arden, where anything is possible and absolutely anything is permissible. As the usurping Duke Frederick banishes Duke Senior and then his daughter Rosalind, a twisted tale of lies, rivalry, mistaken identity, but ultimately romance ensues.

As You Like It is directed by Max Webster, who is set to direct the stage adaptation of Fanny & Alexander at the Old Vic Theatre. Further credits include Dr Seuss’s The Lorax, Cover My Tracks, James and the Giant Peach and To Kill a Mockingbird.

With movement direction by Polly Bennett, design by Naomi Dawson, lighting design by Lee Curran and sound design by Gareth Fry, as well as compositions by Charlie Fink (Noah and the Whale), the production is set to be a real summer treat. Casting is yet to be announced.

A warm, open-hearted and thrilling production, As You Like It subverts the traditional rules of romance to discover what it truly means to be in love. The production plays at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre for a strictly limited season, from July 6th to July 28th 2018, with an official opening on July 11th 2018.
