From the press release: “Lovers meet and find their true selves in this new take on a Shakespearean classic. Join cousins Rosalind and Celia as they flee the restrictive rule of Duke Fredrick to find freedom and love in the magical and trans- formative forest of Arden. As this production explores gender identities and society’s insistence on roles it also provides a romantic romp through the forest of Arden filled with laughter and affectionate rumination on the nature of human identity.”
AS YOU LIKE IT runs March 23 – April 22, 2018 at the Athenaeum Theater, 2936 N. Southport Chicago IL. For more information visit eclectic-theatre.com.
