‘As You Like It’ at Northwestern


“As You Like It” by William Shakespeare, directed by Risher Redick, 

Is it too late to set conditions after you’ve fallen in love? Banished by her uncle to the Forest of Arden, Rosalind disguises herself as a man and puts her would-be husband to the test, discovering both her partner and herself in an instant.

Letting go and opening your heart are at the center of this contemporary production staged by MFA directing candidate Risher Reddick, in which violence and isolation give way to love, communion, and song and dance. 

Talkback discussions will follow the Nov. 20 and Dec. 3 performances.

and 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 6, at the Ethel M. Barber Theater.
