Set in late 1940's France. The court of the Duke, exiled to the forest of Arden (the Ardennes), are philosophers and poets of Paris cafe society. Their songs are in the style of the music of Yves Montand and Edith Piaf. The violence in this dark romance is the memory of the second world war. Rosalind (disguised as a boy) goes into the forest in search of her father and finds Orlando, with whom she is infatuated, also fleeing tyranny. She offers to cure him of his obsession with her. Thus begins Shakespeare's great comedy of young love.
