AS YOU LIKE IT

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Eddie DeHais

In this radically queer version of As You Like It, our main characters—Orlando, Rosalind, and Celia—run away from home in order to become who they really are. In the Forest of Arden, you’re just as likely to fall in love with someone else as you are to fall in love with yourself, as each character explores their joy, whether that’s writing terrible poetry, melancholic monologuing, or epic dance-offs. Rosalind in a man’s disguise has Orlando woo her under the guise of “curing” him of his love for Rosalind, while they both discover that this flirtation is impossibly tantalizing in itself... Queer love, joy, and acceptance are at the center of this riotous production.
