Free Shakespeare in the Park 2019: “As You Like It”

For the 37th season of Shakespeare in the Park, SF Shakes will present a production of As You Like It.

As You Like It follows its heroine Rosalind as she flees persecution in her uncle’s court, accompanied by her cousin Celia to find safety and, eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden. In the forest, they encounter a variety of memorable characters, notably the melancholy traveller Jaques who speaks many of Shakespeare’s most famous speeches (such as “All the world’s a stage”, “too much of a good thing” and “A fool, A fool, I met a fool in the forest”). Jaques provides a sharp contrast to the other characters in the play, always observing and disputing the hardships of life in the country.

Bring your family and friends, a blanket, and a picnic to enjoy professional theater at no charge in a beautiful park setting near you.
