WINSTON-SALEM, NC – The School of Drama and the School of Design & Production at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts present As You Like It, Shakespeare’s lively comedy about the twists and turns on the path to true love and a happy ending. The production is guest-directed by noted Artistic Director Susan Fenichell.
Follow the winding story of lovers Orlando and Rosalind as they are each drawn into the forest of Arden. There, amidst trials and tests, they discover their courage, nobility, and their love for one another. Shakespeare creates a fantastic world that balances love and valor as his characters seek to better understand themselves and their world. This production will keep you on your toes as the Bard playfully reminds us that “all the world’s a stage.”
The production is the last in a four-part, all-Shakespeare spring at the University. Prior productions included Henry V, The Winter’s Tale, and Romeo and Juliet.
