As You Like It by William Shakespeare

“Love is merely a madness…”

Shepherds, clowns, wrestling and bad poetry, plus an ancient forest and everyone is French! What more could you want in a play all about falling in love? Enjoy the company of two of Shakespeare’s wittiest young women, Rosalind and Celia, as they seek liberty and find love in the Forest of Arden.

This event is made possible with funding from Arts in Parks by Seattle Office of Arts & Culture and Seattle Parks.

Directed by David Gassner

The Bard’s comedy is as relevant as ever. At the center of this slapstick comedy involving two sets of identical twins separated at birth is a story of immigrants in a strange land facing expulsion and possible death at the hands of a tyrannical Duke.

Director David Gassner served for several years as the Artistic Director at Theater Schmeater, where he directed the west coast premieres of Maria/Stuart and The American Pilot, the world premiere of Mamet Schmamet!, Kvetch, and The Mandrake. Other past directing projects include Dangerous Corner, Glengarry Glen Ross (twice!), To Kill a Mockingbird, Breaking the Code, Our Town, and two weekends with 14/48. As an actor, he’s appeared locally with Seattle Shakespeare Company/Wooden O, Seattle Public Theater, 14/48, Seattle Fringe Festival, and Theater Schmeater.

GreenStage, Seattle’s Shakespeare in the Park Company, will offer four plays this summer during its 29th year of performing free Shakespeare in Seattle-area parks. The calendar includes full-cast versions of Richard II, directed by Susannah Rose Woods, and of The Comedy of Errors, directed by David Gassner.

In addition, GreenStage will stage two “Backyard Bard” shows; abridged versions of plays running about an hour and using the same for actors in each for all roles. Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be directed by Erin Day.

A full schedule of performances and the cast and crew for each play are on our website. Participating companies are GreenStage, Seattle Shakespeare Company’s Wooden O, Last Leaf Productions, Theater Schmeater, The 14/48 Projects, Freehold Theatre, Jet City Improv, Young Shakespeare Workshop, and Shakespeare Northwest.

All dates, times, and locations subject to change.
