As You Like It Open Reading – February/March

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 19TH AND MARCH 19TH, 2019 @ 6:30 PM

Barnes & Noble Bookstore
810 W Valley Pkwy · Escondido, CA

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.
