As You Like It

December 17, 2015 @ 8:00 pm
A Contemporary Theatre
700 Union St
Seattle, WA 98101


Using a few props, simple costumes, an empty space, and the imagination of Shakespeare’s text, five actors craft a bullet of vulnerability that aims for the soul. As You Like It is a story that starts in the dead of both a physical and emotional winter and awakens an infectious spring in the minds of all who listen. We begin in the controlling court after an uprising in which the old Duke has been overthrown and banished by his younger brother, the new Duke. It is a kingdom full of spies and secrets. A place where desire is ridiculed and love is a weakness. Beyond the walls of the court rests the wild Forest of Arden, where Nature is nothing but itself and will never tell a lie. Lovers flirt and fight their way through the trees, navigating the secret pathways of the heart. Come join us in this celebration of love, poetry, and the rhythm of life.

Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8:00 pm.  Sunday at 2:00 pm.
