Presented by the Ann Arbor Young Actors Guild, As You Like It is one of Shakespeare’s early comedies. The play tells the tale of Rosalind as she flees her uncle’s court and finds refuge in the Forest of Arden. There she falls in love with fellow refugee Orlando, but not before disguising herself as a young man. It’s not the only case of mistaken identity within the play, and in classic Shakespearean fashion, the mix-ups quickly spiral out of control and lead to laugh-out-loud moments that wink at the audience’s knowledge of who’s who while keeping the characters in the dark. One of the Bard’s most accessible and hilarious plays, As You Like It makes for a great introduction to Shakespeare for audience and actors alike.
