By William Shakespeare
Directed by Kevin Rich

Banished from her wicked uncle’s court and disguised as a man, the brilliant young Rosalind seeks refuge in the Forest of Arden. Accompanied by her faithful cousin, Celia, she is welcomed by an unforgettable assortment of courtiers, clowns, romantics, and philosophers, as love is kindled, gender confused, justice debated, and wrongs righted. Inspired by the styles and music of the 1940s, and featuring a complete arena reconfiguration of the Meyer Jacobs Theatre, this refreshing new production of Shakespeare’s great comedy is directed by Kevin Rich, acclaimed artistic director of the Illinois Shakespeare Festival.
