As You Like It
by William Shakespeare
December 7th – 9th at 7pm

When a civil war tears Rosalind from her home and thrusts her into the wild, the young heroine along with her friends must survive the strange and mythical forest where her destiny intertwines with a young man called Orlando.
Alas who knows the fate of these star-crossed lovers if they were to be found by the tyrant Duke Frederick.
In the forest, they encounter a variety of memorable characters, notably the melancholy traveller, Jaques, who speaks some of Shakespeare’s most famous speeches (such as “All the world’s a stage”).
Jaques provides a sharp contrast to the other characters in the play, always observing and disputing the hardships of life in the country.
