Shakespeare in the Plaza: As You Like It
For the third year in a row, Gypsy Lew Theater Company and the Lewiston Public Library are coming together to bring some Shakespeare in the Plaza, with a free production of As You Like It! This delightful and hilarious tale begins when Rosalind, the daughter of a banished duke falls in love with Orlando, the disinherited son of one of the duke’s friends. However, she is banished from the court by her usurping uncle, and takes on the appearance of a boy, calling herself Ganymede. She flees with her cousin Celia and the jester Touchstone to the Forest of Arden, where her father and his friends live in exile. This comedy, set in the groovy 1970s, follows the group of banished and runaway misfits who find love, friendship, and themselves in the forest of Arden. Bring your blankets and chairs and join us for a free show August 22nd-25th at 7pm in Dufresne Plaza. In the event of rain, performances will be in Callahan Hall at the Lewiston Public Library.
