AS YOU LIKE IT @Avalon Sailing Club
As You Like It is one of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies. It's the story of love, forgiveness, and the power of nature to transform our lives. The play follows a group of characters who flee a corrupt court and find refuge in the outback of Arden. Where they learn to live in harmony with nature and discover new truths about themselves and each other.
Befitting Such Stuff’s vital, contemporary approach to Shakespeare, our As You Like It opens today, in a corporate kingdom ripe with greed and jealousy and deceit. Then banishment sends our characters, not to rustic Arden Forest, but to Australia’s outback.
Our production explores the hidden dangers, and delights, of love in Shakespeare’s story; so the characters encounter love’s extremes and they’ll struggle to keep their feet on rough ground. But will they also discover true 'liberty and not banishment' in their lives and in love?
"That was the most understandable Shakespeare I've ever seen." - Our 'Othello' audience, February 2023
