Director's daughter poses as she likes it

In his lucid new production of 'As You Like It,' Sir Peter Hall - the renowned British director who has been the head of both the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Royal National Theatre - casts his daughter, Rebecca, to play the starring role of Rosalind. It's blatant nepotism, but nobody seems to mind much.

That's because Rebecca comes by her talents honestly, showing the same fluency with Shakespeare as did her father and her brother, Edward, the director who made waves in New York last year with audacious productions of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' and the Henry VI trilogy."
