ABOUT THE PLAY:
One of Shakespeare’s brightest and most clever comedies comes to The Empty Space this Spring!
In AS YOU LIKE IT, witty words and romance play out against the disputes of a pair of divided siblings. Duke Frederick has forced Duke Senior, into exile in the Forest of Arden. Duke Senior’s daughter, Rosalind, has remained behind at the request of her cousin Celia. Meanwhile, Oliver, Orlando’s older brother, has the kept inheritance from their late father to himself, and schemes to have Orlando killed in a wrestling match.
Rosalind meets Orlando at the wrestling match, where they fall in love. Suddenly banished by the Duke, Rosalind assumes a male identity and leaves with Celia and their friend, the comic Touchstone. Orlando flees Oliver’s murderous plots. They all end up in the Forest of Arden. Rosalind, in disguise, forms a teasing friendship with Orlando. Oliver, searching for Orlando, reforms after Orlando saves his life, and soon falls for Celia. Rosalind reveals her identity, triggering several weddings. Duke Frederick restores the dukedom to Duke Senior, and all ends joyfully.
