Shakespeare on the Sound: As You Like It

Wilton Library
Rimer Room

Event Details

Please join us for a special program just in time for Shakespeare on the Sound's annual summer production of As You Like It in Rowayton's Pinkney Park (June 14 –July 2). It’s their 27th year presenting Shakespeare's plays outdoors.

 “Do you not know I am a woman? When I think I must speak.”

Fun Fact: In Shakespeare's romantic comedy As You Like It, the heroine Rosalind has more lines than any other female character in all of Shakespeare: more lines than Cleopatra or Juliet, more than twice as many lines as Lady Macbeth.

In As You Like It, Shakespeare's version of Into The Woods, we have not two, not three, but four romantically challenged couples wandering the forest of Arden. Without Rosalind, they would never find each other, much less true love. Shakespeare wrote AYLI at the peak of his career, right before Twelfth Night and Hamlet, and it has been an audience favorite ever since.

Shakespeare on the Sound Education Director and Macbeth/Christmas Carol actor Nick Urda and board member/Shakespeare teacher John Love will guide you through As You Like It and, in an interactive presentation, hope to show you why they consider Rosalind Shakespeare's greatest heroine and AYLI his most interesting comedy.
