RSC Shakespeare on Screen: As You Like It (1963) (PG*)

Cinema 1

 Sold out

One of the earliest hits for the newly established RSC, Michael Elliott’s sparkling version of Shakespeare's comedy is still remembered with joy by a generation of theatre-goers.

The design was dominated by a huge oak tree, but the production is most memorable for Vanessa Redgrave’s luminous Rosalind, supported by Max Adrian and Ian Bannen. Fortunately, the BBC made a studio recording, which here receives an exceptionally rare screening.
