Duke Senior, deposed by his brother, is banished. He and his retinue retire to the Forest of Arden. His daughter, Rosalind, remaining behind with her cousin Celia, has fallen in love with Orlando. He has his own tyrannical brother to contend with. He flees to the Forest with his old retainer Adam. Rosalind, herself banished, disguises herself as a young man, with Celia as her servant, and they too go off to the Forest. In Arden, nature stirs love’s fires in various rustics as well as in those from the court. Phebe, a shepherdess loved by Silvius, is herself smitten with the disguised Rosalind. Can true love find a way, and can brothers be reconciled and harmony restored?
