As You Like It
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Catherine Weidner
What happens in the Forest of Arden stays in the Forest of Arden! When a Duke in exile, his banished daughter, a willful young man and their loyal followers flee to the tranquility of the forest, they discover their true selves and the power of redemption. This most exquisite of Shakespeare’s comedies combines a road movie, a buddy picture, a love story, and a battle of wills.

One of the best contemporary theatrical works in the English language, Arcadia delves into the lives of 19th century people: Thomasina Coverly, her tutor Septimus Hodge, and Lord Byron, an unseen house guest. Through the investigation of Byron’s life by two modern scholars, the play juxtaposes two staggeringly different time periods in history.
