WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Arden/Everywhere reimagines Shakespeare's As You Like It as a story about refugees. It unlocks this beloved comedy's deepest heartbeat to tell a distinctly contemporary story — one that looks into a world of dislocation and exile to discover resilience, reconciliation, and love. Performed by a diverse cast of actors whose origins extend from Russia to Liberia to Sri Lanka to Ohio, it unleashes theater's unique ability to awaken empathy, locating our common humanity in the face of a seemingly incomprehensible global catastrophe.
