From our April 2021 workshop, it’s the final session of Act 1, Scene 2, from Shakespeare’s As You Like It.
This is where we first meet Rosalind and Celia, and have only recently learned that Rosalind’s father has been banished by Celia’s father, the Duke. The two women attempt to dissuade Orlando from wrestling Charles, and Rosalind and Orlando are visibly affected by each other.
We continue rolling out these episodes from the past 12+ months of workshops we’ve been doing, including Richard III, King Lear, Troilus and Cressida, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Julius Caesar, King John and more. You get some of the popular plays and the lesser-known ones too. If you’ve missed any presentations thus far, click here to find them all.
These presentations are available on the podcast and YouTube, and you can find both below. While there is a video component, since so much emphasis is on the text, I believe it’s still an excellent experience with the audio version.
