"Pinckney Players proudly presents As You Like It, part of its Shakespeare in the Park series
A hilarious romantic comedy with a 50's twist
This is a free event at Pinckney Town Square Park on June 9 and 10 at 6:30 pm and June 11 at 2:00 pm
As You Like It turns the traditional rules of romance on their heads. Gender roles, nature, and politics are confused in a play that reflects on how bewildering yet utterly pleasurable life can be.
Rosalind, the daughter of a banished duke, falls in love with Orlando at a wrestling match. Her usurping uncle, jealous of her popularity, banishes her from court. Disguised as a boy, she leaves with her cousin Celia and the jester Touchstone to seek out her father in the Forest of Arden. Here she meets Orlando again and, under the guise of a young man, counsels him in the art of love and wooing.
A firm favorite among Shakespeare’s comedies, and including some of his best loved characters, As You Like It runs the glorious gamut of pastoral romance: cross-dressing and love-notes; poetry and brilliant conversation; gentle satire, slapstick and passion.
Come to the gazebo on a beautiful June day, bring chairs or blanket, and (as you like it) even a picnic!"
