This chapter continues and concludes the story of As You Like It at Stratford-upon-Avon, focusing on two major productions, Buzz Goodbody’s in 1973, and Adrian Noble’s in 1985, and then providing a summary of the play’s performance history until 2013. Goodbody’s production is discussed in terms of its relation both to feminism and popular performance; Noble’s in relation to the phenomenon of Director’s Shakespeare.
