Shakespeare invites his audience into the Forest of Arden, where the beneficent and chaotic forces of Nature will melt away the synthetic bonds of the city and restore us to our proper selves…perhaps. One of Shakespeare’s most simple, flirtatious and playful comedies, As You Like It takes us away from the preening theater of the court to explore the primal theater of Nature; here is a play that belongs outside. Join us for a journey into the woods as we overlay the Forest of Arden on Maudslay State Park for Shakespeare’s As You Like It.
