As You Like It

By William Shakespeare / Directed by Edward Morgan
Run Time: 2 hour and 40 minutes (including intermission)

Comic twists and turns abound in the fertile Forest of Arden, where a disguised Rosalind seeks refuge after being wrongfully banished by her uncle. Her unfortunate exile is transformed into a charming adventure when she encounters some of Shakespeare’s most beloved characters - colorful fools, witty rustics, and the handsome, lovesick Orlando. A clandestine, gender-bending courtship ensues, changing the lost into unexpected lovers, in this timeless and transcendent romantic comedy.
 
Produced with generous support from Lynn and Tim Pistell.

Our production of AS YOU LIKE IT is part of
Shakespeare for a New Generation, a national program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
