As You Like It

As You Like It
By William Shakespeare

August 23, 24, 25*, 29**, 30, 31, September 1*, 5**, 6, 7, 2013

Rosalind, the daughter of a banished duke, falls in love with Orlando at a wrestling match, but her usurping uncle, jealous of her popularity, banishes her from court. Disguised as a boy she seeks out her father and his friends in the Forest of Arden. Here she meets Orlando again and, under the guise of a young man, counsels him in the art of love. A favorite Shakespearean comedy, As You Like It celebrates the pastoral romance with cross-dressing,
love notes; poetry, brilliant conversation, gentle satire, slapstick and passion.
