It’s always wonderful for the company when the careers of our actors take flight.  We’ve just seen Riad Richie as Usman in the RSC’s Tartuffe directed by Iqbal Khan, our Associate Director, and he has been followed swiftly by David Ajao who has also been snapped up by the RSC to play Orlando in As You Like It which opened recently. David, who has appeared in our Romeo and JulietThe Hate Play and A Christmas Carol as well as a number of projects, has been under the direction of Kimberley Sykes (The Hate Play, Mark and the Marked) for this production described by The Daily Telegraph as inventive, playful, captivating.

David Ajao as Orlando has seemingly boundless energy and innocent charm. 

Rhys Clarke,

David Ajao perfectly captures the character’s joyful, puppyish excitement of falling in love.
