AS YOU LIKE IT

By William Shakespeare
Adapted and directed by Eddie DeHais
Staged by Annie G. Levy

In this radically queer version of As You Like It, our main characters—Orlando, Rosalind, and Cedric—run away from home in order to become who they really are. In the Forest of Arden, you’re just as likely to fall in love with someone else as you are to fall in love with yourself, as each character leans into what makes them happiest, whether that’s writing terrible poetry, melancholic monologuing, or epic dance-offs. Rosalind has Orlando woo her under the guise of “curing” him of his love for Rosalind, while they both discover that this flirtation is impossibly tantalizing in itself. Queer love, joy, and acceptance are at the center of this riotous production.

A note from the
Adaptor & Director

This play is queer.

Queerness is not about labels. Anyone—anyone!—who tries to define, box in, or gate-keep others based on some conception or understanding of gender or sexuality is definitely not acting in the spirit of queerness and should be kindly told to fuck off.

 

Queerness is a space of possibility and discovery. A space of gaps, overlaps, collisions, contradictions, abundances, and questions. Queerness is not white. Queerness is not binary. Queerness is not thin, ableist, aligned with Eurocentric beauty standards, or corporate in any way. The first pride was a direct response to police brutality that was directed at black and brown bodies, at trans folks, at those who weren’t allowed to be themselves in public. To embrace queerness is to honor these ancestors us by living with radical joy and acceptance, and showing up for others who are not allowed to exist in safety as themselves.

 

Queerness is about community. Together, we build a space where we are allowed to remain fluid and forever changing. Human beings are a process, not a fixed set of characteristics. Community loves us into being. That’s what this play is about: a group of people who are rejected by society, and instead of falling into despair, they thrive by building something new…

 

However, labels can give us a guide, and they’re important when they help us think more deeply and expansively about how we are telling story in the context of the society in which we live. In my history as a director, I have often cast actors who revealed something new and powerful to me about a character or story. To me, that is true queer casting.

 

This play should only open doors; not close them. Every role was open to anyone. Queerness was centered in the casting of this play, but actors did not need to identify as queer in order to audition for or be cast in this play. BIPOC actors, TGNC actors, actors with disabilities, neurodivergent folks, no matter what body shape you have or cultural background you are from: all are enthusiastically invited to the Forest of Arden.

Production Plot
Synopsis

By Michelle “Shell” Garcia, based on the adaptation script note

 

ACT I paints the oppressive society of the court after Duke Senior was banished to the Forest of Arden by her younger sister Duke Frederick. Under the rule of Frederick, the court is now where all subjects are bound to rigid rules of behavior and expression and to act in a way that is not coded for you can result in your exile or death. Orlando, younger trans brother of the cold hearted Oliver, sets out to wrestle the Duke’s champion wrestler Charles. At the match, he meets Rosalind, daughter of the banished Duke Senior, and the two fall in love at first sight. But after trouble brews more and more, we watch one by one the characters escape to find new beginnings in the Forest of Arden. 

ACT 2 flips to the beautiful Forest of Arden. Now free of the confines of oppression, the characters learn to express themselves more fully in words, music, dance, and presentation. Here, we meet the people of the forest. From Audrey, the saucy shepherdess, the melancholy Jacques, to even Phoebe and her lovesick follower Sylvia. We watch characters fall in love, not only with each other, but with themselves as they learn anything is possible in the forest (including a throuple!). Where in Act 1 we see the spark of joy first kindled, Act 2 allows it to flourish and grow abundantly and exuberantly.

A note from
the Dramaturg

Eddie DeHais opened the December 13th workshop of their adaptation of Shakespeare’s As You Like It by stating that the original Globe Theater neighbored, and competed with, what was known as the Bear Gardens: a place where hundreds of Londoners flocked to watch animals fight to the death. DeHais brought this up to emphasize the point that even though this bear baiting game was loved by many (because what else do you do in Elizabethan times?), Shakespeare’s plays continuously won the attention of the crowd. A theater which could fit 3500 audience members remained packed weekly. This speaks to both the power of the text and of the actors who hold it in its truth, a power that the cast understood that they most surely hold today.

The workshop style mixed the energies of a classroom and summer camp. A place where lessons were learned through open discussions and play. Beginning with having the company bring in different devices of light and sound, the start of collaborative playing began. With different tools such as lava lamps, a violin, flashlights, and even a cat keyboard, the company experimented with the different ways both light and sound can be manipulated, shaped, and used. Discussions of what associations were made led to ideas of how these same concepts could be applied in this production. This sort of group playing is a theme that has threaded throughout the entire workshop experience and into the rehearsal process, thus creating the perfect real life example of “queer joy” that DeHais worked to have in their adaptation.

 

While subsequently diving intro text work, the workshop's energy transferred into a safe classroom; one where we were able to have candid conversations about the importance of making this show queer and why we need to tell this story now. Queer has been defined as inclusive; a queer world is where everyone (yes everyone) can be seen as equals. The term “queer joy” sprouted from that definition. A queer joy is a joy that can be shared by all and shared abundantly. The multiple identities that the cast embodies speaks to the why now of this production. BIPOC, Trans, Queer, Questioning, etc., this cast is filled with a queer voice that has been silenced so many times before. Together, in combination with the text and the ways they already see themselves in it, the cast launched into the process, trusting themselves and each other to create a show where a queer joy can touch all who come.
