About As You Like It:

Irrepressible cousins, Rosalind and Celia, fall afoul of the Duke, and make their escape into the Forest of Arden. There, they discover a world of vivid characters and romantic possibilities. When class and gender boundaries shatter, they discover both themselves and a beguiling truth: transformation is always possible.
