One of William Shakespeare’s most loved comedy plays will be beamed live to the Leighton Buzzard Library Theatre on Thursday.

Shakespeare’s glorious comedy of love As You Like It comes to the National Theatre for the first time in more than 30 years.

And on Thursday, February 25, it will be screened to visitors to the theatre. Rosalie Craig leads the cast as Rosalind.

With her father the Duke banished and in exile, Rosalind and her cousin Celia leave their lives in the court behind them and journey into the Forest of Arden. There, released from convention, Rosalind experiences the liberating rush of transformation.

Disguising herself as a boy, she embraces a different way of living and falls spectacularly in love.

The screening is part of a series of events which sees West End entertainment beamed to local venues across the country.

It starts at 7pm and tickets for the screening cost £15 for adults and £13 for concessions.
