Students from the University of Oxford present Shakespeare's classic summer comedy in the Christ Church Cathedral Garden. Conducted amid leafy bowers, fairy lights and a summery soundtrack of acoustic folk, 'As You Like It' is a comedy of fantasy forests, cross-dressing lovers and happily-ever-after. Duke Ferdinand is banished to the forest with his court, followed shortly by Rosalind and Celia, in disguise... Orlando, Rosalind's lover, isn't far behind. Confusion and delight ensue. Soak up the beauty of summer in Oxford as the forest changes from day to night, from madness to marriage, and from discord to love.
