As you like it

When Rosalind and Orlando meet for the first time at a poetry slam, it's love at first sight. Are they each other's rescue from this gloomy existence?

Rosalind is evicted from home along with her niece and best friend Celia. They flee into the forest. Fearing highwaymen and other creeps, Rosalind dresses as a young man. They go in search of Rosalind’s father, who runs a popular campsite somewhere in the Ardennes. An idyllic spot with vegetarian cuisine and cuddly jam sessions by the campfire. Dress code: as you like it.
Orlando is also on the run because of a terrible fight at home. In the forest, the young lovers meet by chance. But Rosalind keeps him at arm’s length. Is Orlando really in love with her? Or is he actually in love with himself? Can someone who is madly in love be trusted at all?

A 24-Decade History of Popular Music is Mac’s subjective history of America since its founding in 1776. This abridged version of the show is a highly immersive and outrageously entertaining crash course in the 240 years (and counting) of the history of American culture and dysfunction.
