Shakespeare's As You Like It
Come away with us to 1969, the Summer of Love, where our production of As You Like It takes place. Having opposing ideologies on the war and the general state of life in their town, Duke Senior, is banished and ousted from the family business by his younger brother, Duke Frederick. Duke Senior decides to cast off his wealth and live a simple life in the Forest of Arden with his fellow anti-war protesters, musicians and peace loving friends. With her father gone, Rosalind and her cousin Celia decide to run away to Arden to be with him. Before they leave, Rosalind falls in love with Orlando, who is hated by his elder brother, Oliver who not only has all the power in the family, but wants him killed. Fearing for her life due to the fall out with her uncle, Rosalind disguises herself and flees into the forest with her beloved cousin and their eccentric friend Touchstone. Explore the love, peace, turmoil, music, social clashes, and the politics of the day through the lens of the Bard. The names and times may change, but for the stage of our world all the men and women remain merely players.
