Director Daryl Cloran presents a fresh new retelling of Shakespeare's As You Like It. Presented at Chicago's Shakespeare Theater, the comedy originally written in 1599 is re-told and this time is set in the swinging 60s. The play takes place when free-spirited love is the theme of the time and is set to The Beatles' timeless hits, creating a joyous and music-filled love story.
The original tale follows Rosalind as she escapes to the Forest of Arden to find her love, Orlando.
This exciting new adaptation is the work of Daryl Cloran, the artistic director of the Citadel Theatre in Edmonton and winner of a Toronto Theatre Emerging Artist Award and a Robert Merritt Award for Outstanding Direction.
