The Curate Shakespeare As You Like It
by The Baron's Men

Mar. 01 - Mar. 17

This unusual piece is subtitled "The record of one company's attempt to perform the play by William Shakespeare." When the prolific Mr. Nigro was asked by a professional theatre company to adapt As You Like It so that it could be performed by a company of seven, he devised a completely original play about a rag tag group of players led by a dotty old curate who must present Shakespeare's play. The dramatic interest and the comedy derive from their hilarious attempts to impersonate all of Shakespeare's characters. The play has had numerous productions nationwide and has become an underground comic classic.

Directed by Kate Clark.
