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 leans into what makes them happiest, whether that’s writing terrible poetry, melancholic monologuing, or epic dance-offs.
Rosalind 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. By William Shakespeare, directed by Eddie DeHais
