[ Competition: Win tickets to As You Like It ]

The Young Vic is on 'Walkabout' whilst its home in The
Cut is redeveloped. The company's production of As You
Like It - starring Helen McCrory and Sienna Miller - is
currently at the Wyndham's Theatre in the West End.

In fear of their lives, Rosalind and Celia flee to a
forest. Escaping what they most fear, they both
discover what they most love. Sparkling with wit, this
joyous tale of a girl disguised as a boy - who tempts
the man she loves to fall for the boy she isn’t – has
all the longing and pain of everyone’s first big
romance.

A brilliant cast of young British actors is led by
multi-award winning Helen McCrory (Donmar’s Twelfth
Night, Uncle Vanya) as Rosalind with rising star Sienna
Miller (Layer Cake, Alfie) as Celia. Dominic West (Mona
Lisa Smile, The Forgotten, 28 Days) plays Orlando. Also
starring are the comic Sean Hughes, Reece Shearsmith of
The League of Gentlemen and Clive Rowe (Carousel,
Simply Heavenly).

SE1 Direct readers can win one of two pairs of top
price tickets to see the show at the Wyndham's Theatre,
Charing Cross Road, London WC2.  To be in with a chance
of winning, simply answer this simple question:

* In which SE1 street is the Young Vic based? *

Email your answer and contact details to
feedback@se1direct.co.uk by 5pm tomorrow (Tuesday 23
August). The first two correct entries randomly
selected after 5pm will each win a pair of tickets to
the show. The editor's decision is final.
