A president is deposed by his brother and the country is plunged into civil war. The deposed president and his followers flee to the Ardenner Woud. 

Here, in the wilds and far from civilisation, they try to build a better world and live "a pure life in the country". With gay abandon, people play and practice the false and true love , dreams, desires

and lost illusions that result in the harsh comedy As you like it. Their struggles with life are very familiar in our crazy day and age.

“Another long and exuberant evening of theatre bursting with acting pleasure and successful jokes, in this case with extra sparkle thanks to a cast full of fresh new talent.”

Het Parool *** 22 December 2014

“Hannah Hoekstra and Reinout Scholten van Aschat play the young lovers Rosalinde and Orlando beautifully clumsily and na├»vely.”

The Volkskrant, 22 February 2014

“Hannah Hoekstra as Rosalinde beautifully plays her double role as girl and young man." "Reinout Scholten van Aschat as Orlando is a melancholy boy who beautifully shows the pain of infatuation.”

NRC ***, 22 december 2014

“[Touchstone] is played by Antoinette Jelgersma as a mixture of a hypocritical moraliser and a psychiatrist, right down to the cigar and German accent.”

Theaterkrant ****, 22 February 2014

“The performance radiates acting pleasure.”
