“All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players…”
-As You Like It, Act 2, Scene 7
The Forest of Arden is hopping! On the run from his murderous brother, Orlando hides out in the Forest, where Rosalind, banished from the Court, is also on the run, disguised as a shepherd. As if their love lives weren’t complicated enough, they have to contend with a real shepherd and shepherdess with their own romance issues, an exiled Duke and his posse, and the court fool. Awash in wit and exuberant in a bedrock belief that love conquers all, this beloved Shakespeare comedy races toward a happy ending and four – count them, four – weddings.
