Rosalind in As You Like It

As You Like It

by William Shakespeare

July 2003: Richmond Shakespeare Society

My first major Shakespeare role since Ophelia in 1981. In a blistering July heatwave, in the open air, I relished the privilege of playing Rosalind. At the age of 40, I played my last juvenile; the fact that my Orlando was a rather dishy and talented 27 year old had no influence whatever on my enjoyment of the role. No, sir.

I've also captured a small taste of the show from the dress-rehearsal video (at least with Shakespeare one doesn't need to worry about copyright issues). You can see the results on YouTube by clicking here.
