Forced into exile in the Forest of Arden, Rosalind and Orlando become entangled in a beguiling game of love and mistaken identity that turns traditional rules of romance upside down. Disguises and secrets get in the way of true love and result in hilarious love triangles that only a ‘magical transformation’ can fix.

A firm favorite among Shakespeare’s comedies, As You Like It has some of the bard’s best loved characters, pastoral romance, love notes, music, satire, slapstick, passion and even the famous “All the World’s a Stage” soliloquy.

This will be the final fall Crimson Company production under the direction of Brian McGurl.
