As You Like It is one of William Shakespeare's most performed plays and the comedy features one of his strongest female characters, Rosalind. The play starts almost like a history, relating the intrigues of a French duchy where Duke Senior, rightful ruler, has been exiled by the devious Frederick. The Duke's daughter Rosalind decides to flee with her cousin, both in disguise, to the Forest of Arden. Young Orlando is in love with Rosalind, but he too must leave the kingdom due to familial strife. Marriage plots, family arguments and the vagaries of love are the major plot points. It is one of the sunniest of Shakespeare's plays. It banishes darkness in favor of resolution and forgiveness, and celebrates individual freedom and choice.
