"We that are true lovers run into strange capers..."

Banished from Duke Senior's court, young Rosalind flees to the Forest of Arden along with Duke Senior's daughter, her cousin Celia. Disguised as the handsome Ganymede and simple shepherdess Aliena, the two hide from her cruel uncle and hope for a new life. Nearby, the dashing Orlando is also seeking shelter in the forest, far from his malicious brother Oliver and the feud that began with a wrestling match but has escalated into a plot against his life.

Heartbroken at being away from his beloved Rosalind, he encounters 'Ganymede', who promises to cure Orlando with love lessons. Meanwhile, local shepherdess Phoebe also has her eye on Ganymede, despite the advances of smitten shepherd Silvius. As the hopes and dreams of the group entangle with one another, can everyone get what they truly want?

William Shakespeare was born to John Shakespeare and Mary Arden in late April 1564 in Stratford-upon-Avon. He wrote about 38 plays (the precise number is uncertain), many of which are regarded as the most exceptional works of drama ever produced, including Romeo and Juliet (1595), Henry V (1599), Hamlet (1601), Othello (1604), King Lear (1606) and Macbeth (1606), as well as a collection of 154 sonnets, which number among the most profound and influential love poetry in English. Shakespeare died in Stratford in 1616.
