Performance Details - As You Like It
Hands/Farrah, Royal Shakespeare Company, April 1980
"Farrah's design too, has an uncharacteristic ebullience: when the play opens we have the stark, sterile, rather obtrusive set so often produced by a Hands/Farrah collaboration; but as the narrative moves into the forest, the barriers which the design has so far placed between us and the actors disappear. From then on the set blossoms finally to burgeon with light and colour." Sally Aire, Plays and Players 4.80
Opening Date: 3 April 1980
Theatre: Royal Shakespeare Theatre
