LOCATION

Actors’ Shakespeare Project is proud to close out our 2022-23 Season with one of Shakespeare’s most timeless comedies. At a time when state legislatures across the US ban drag performances and police LGBTQ+ bodies, AS YOU LIKE IT leans into its famed crossdressing mayhem and gender euphoria, celebrating the inherent queerness of mythical Arden. Join some of the Bard’s most beloved characters — Jacques, Touchstone, Silvius, Phoebe, and many more — at Tufts’ Balch Arena Theater for a show filled with laughter, music, romance, and plenty of Shakespearean hijinks. Follow Rosalind’s pursuit of Orlando through the forest disguised as a shepherd boy, as the pair discovers themselves, and the true meaning of love (is love is love is love). With the precise vision of Director Harold Steward and in partnership with The Theatre Offensive, ASP’s AS YOU LIKE IT seeks to illuminate the common ground between “All the world’s a stage” and “We’re all born naked and the rest is drag.” Please be aware that this production is intended for mature audiences and has depictions and language of: gender identity, and misogyny and physical violence. Appropriate for ages 10 and over.
