In the idyllic Forest of Arden, the paths of various outcasts intersect, each forced to flee for a different reason: the rightful duke of the land's throne was usurped by his brother, the duke's daughter Rosalind could no longer bare the violent and unjust new ruler, and the young Orlando's brother cheated him out of his inheritance and now wants to kill him. Complications, family feuds, the abuse of power – fleeing seems like the only option.

Orlando falls in love with Rosalind, everything seems rosy, but there is a little problem: Rosalind is currently camouflaged in men's apparel and calls herself Ganymede...

The Forest of Arden is a place of desire in which you can live your own utopia. If that were really the case, theatre would be superfluous.
