As You Like It

July 20 – September 10, 2017

Written by: William Shakespeare
Directed by: Rob Clare

Shakespeare’s sparkling comedy illuminates the courage of a young woman casting off the constraints of her world and starting anew in the Forest of Arden. Funny, hopeful, tender, and wise, As You Like It subverts the traditional rules of romance and moves us through all the seasons of love.
