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. Forced into exile in the Forest of Arden, lovers Rosalind and Orlando become entangled in a beguiling game of love, lust and mistaken identity. The play has some of the loveliest poetry Shakespeare wrote, including the famous “All the world’s a stage…” speech.
Connie Boyd, the Director, has taught Drama and English for 28 years at San Pasqual High School. Took students to Fullerton, Thespians, Drama Teachers Association of Southern California, and English Speaking Union Shakespeare competitions. They performed in in-classroom presentations of poetry and short scenes. Directed and acted at Patio Playhouse for 33 years.
The San Diego Museum of Art and the San Diego Shakespeare Society team up for an enjoyable evening of art and poetry with this special after-hours collaboration!
Featuring Darryl Woodson, John Tessmer, Jess Boles Lohmann, Patricia Elmore Costa, and Nathan Agin performing sonnets, speeches, and scenes from the canon!
