“Josie Rourke, the former artistic director of the Bush and Donmar, has just been announced as the director of the NT’s upcoming revival of Brian Friel’s Dancing at Lughnasa, but first she returns to the stage with the first in-house production at the West End’s new build theatre, @sohoplace. As You Like It is a play flecked with joy as hard winter gives way to a springtime for the heart. This version has a cracking cast led by Leah Harvey as Rosalind, Strictly Come Dancing winner Rose Ayling-Ellis as Celia, Alfred Enoch as Orlando and the delicious Martha Plimpton as Jacques.”
