Mainstage: As You Like It

About the play

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Aaron Willis*

As You Like It subverts the traditional rules of romance. Gender roles, nature and politics are confused in a play that reflects on how bewildering yet utterly pleasurable life can be. Witty words and romance play out against the disputes of divided pairs of brothers. Shakespeare’s pastoral comedy, believed to have been written in 1599 and first published in the First Folio in 1623, not only insists that people can and do change, but also celebrates their ability to change for the better.
