In Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy, Rosalind and Orlando meet by chance in court and have an immediate connection. When they are both banished, fate brings them together again in the Forest of Arden. Far from the restrictions of court life, we find ourselves in a vibrant new world, where identities can be fully explored and romance can blossom in multiple forms. Brought to vibrant life by a cast of trans, non-binary and Queer performers, Christopher Ashley and Will Davis’s re-imagined "As You Like It" is a celebration of the limitless possibilities of love and humanity. This bold and beautiful production inhabits a wonderful, ‘gender-ful’ world – a sensuous place that embraces the full spectrum of gender possibilities. Evoking the heady experience of falling in love, and underscored by heart-thumping live music, there are no boundaries in "As You Like It", just endless complexities, infinite love and the joyful expression of true selves. Love is in the air! Don't miss La Jolla Playhouse's new production co-directed by Christopher Ashley and Will Davis and produced in association with Diversionary Theatre.
