About "As You Like It"
Silvius loves Phoebe who loves Ganymede who is really Rosalind who loves Orlando who hates Oliver who loves Celia, not including William who loves Audrey who loves Touchstone the clown. Our production of
"As You Like It" is set in pre-revolution Russia and is a fantasy about personal power and social responsibility told through a tangled web of disguise and romance.
Whether physically, emotionally, or spiritually, those who enter the Forest of Arden are often remarkably different when they leave. As we surrender to the spell of Shakespeare’s magic, we too are free for the moment from the conventions and restraints of the real world, and we linger in an enchanted wood to listen to the theorizing of Jaques, the jests of Touchstone and the laughter of Rosalind.
You will have to see this comedy to find out who gets whom.
