Figure in forest



Synopsis

A triumphant comedy about finding love in a time of tyranny—with strong characters, biting wit and some of Shakespeare’s greatest dialogue.

The story revolves around Rosalind, one of Shakespeare’s most fully realized heroines, and her flight from her tyrannical uncle to the forest of Arden. There, disguised as a young man, she meets a band of fellow exiles, attracts the unwanted affections of a shepherdess, and pursues her own love interest, Orlando. Meanwhile, Orlando’s villainous brother plots his murder, and her uncle’s soldiers come ever closer to capturing Rosalind and her friends.

Among the play’s many endearing characters is the melancholy Jacques, one of Shakespeare’s most popular comic roles. Best known for his famous “all the world’s a stage” monologue, Jacques has amused audiences (and challenged actors) since As You Like It was first staged.

Following a long-standing HSF tradition, this production of As You Like It will feature an all-female identifying cast.
