As You Like It
Suddenly banished from their homes, cousins Rosalind and Celia are forced to reinvent themselves in the strange and exotic Forest of Arden. Disguised as a shepherd boy for protection, Rosalind meets the man of her dreams. Will she
dare to reveal herself and risk her safety and her heart for a chance at love? All the while the cultural elite of the court co-mingle with the locals of the forest with surprising and tender results. Join Two Pence Shakespeare as we
explore the dark complexity of this heartfelt and witty ensemble journey about entering into exile, only to discover you are, for the first time, truly home.
