Prefaces to Shakespeare | As You Like It

As You Like It

Janet Suzman gives the third of six talks introducing the first season of Shakespeare's plays on BBC2. "In most plays people are different at the end of the play from what they were at the beginning. None more so than in As You Like It. Not only do people undergo a huge emotional change in their hearts, they also change their clothes, and their status, and their homes, and their values." These talks were given as curtain raisers to the transmission of the BBC Television Shakespeare plays.
