Mary Job directs Shakespeare’s beloved comedy that explores themes of love: who can love, the loyalty of love, silly love, lustful love, romantic love. In this production, As You Like Itmoves into contemporary America of the 20th-21st century, with the court scenes in a slick city setting, the townsfolk those of small town 1960s, and the forest world a hippie north woods/New England Environment. Job said “…love, no matter how you like it, is always a journey, often a trial, and sometimes a reward.”
