GRSF’s As You Like It follows its heroine Rosalind as she flees persecution in her uncle’s court, accompanied by her cousin Celia to find safety and, eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden. In the forest, they encounter a variety of memorable characters, some who are there by choice, some by misfortune. All of them discover a personal truth which allows them to get on a path of happiness. In the end, tyrants find reconciliation (not cancellation) showing that communities are always interconnected and that a better story is possible than the one we may currently be experiencing.

Directed by long-time company member, Tarah Flanagan, this production shines a hopeful light on life’s struggles.
As You Like It runs June 23-July 29.
